Airbrush Question

Ive been thinking about getting an airbrush for costume and prop making needs. But I also want to use it for body makeup (such as pink skin for a Princess Bubblegum costume). Ive been looking everywhere but I nothing will tell me if I can use the same air brush system for makeup and craft applications.

Does anyone know the answer?

every non specialized airbrush says that its good across the board for things it can do, unfortunately causing people to buy airbrushes that suck at what they really wanted it to do. In my experience, the only airbrush that does what it says in terms of versatility is an Iwata. I have an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS. But keep in mind the price tag can be a little high, but completely worth it. I would suggest simply buying the airbrush separately, an airline for it, and all the adapters for a small construction compressor (with a tank) instead of the an air brush compressor. Its cheaper, and you don't get the PSI loss when you first hit the trigger that you get with tankless airbrush compressors. Plus most small constructions compressors have a regulator right on them. You will (eventually) need a water separator for the compressor, but you should be good without it for a few months as long as you don't leave it running when you aren't using it.

or of course if you already have a compressor, with a water separator, you just need fitting to attach to the airbrush hose.
