This is such amazing information Heather. I learned a lot today that I didn't know about compressors!

Thank you Jasmine! I know when people look into systems, it's pretty overwhelming so I just wanted to skim over some of the things to consider when buying one, especially if it's not going to be just used for foundation.

yay! thank you sooo much for this video! i do have a question for you, i bought the dinair system blindly i know a lil more now about airbrushing but i had no idea what i was doing when i purchased it, and it doesnt seem to be quite what i wanted. it seems like its just for beauty makeup so my question is if im looking to get more artistic and particularly leaning toward sfx what would you recomend as the least expensive option to get me started in the right direction? is it the gun the compressor or both ect...

I am not too familiar with the Dinair system, but you could start by practicing with that system with acrylic paints and such. Airbrush systems are always expensive, but Stilazzi has a nice compressor for $200, which is a pretty standard compressor that will do all the work you need to do. You can find good double action guns for around $150 as well. I prefer double action because it's easier for me to control the amount of product.

I suggest following Stilazzi on twitter/facebook because they sometimes have flash sales where things are 30-40% off.
