I have oily skin, within an hour or two of putting makeup on my face it is real shiny...i would love to find a makeup that is sweatproof and good for summer time (I sweat alot at work, year round) and would keep my face less shiny. and last all day...I know it sounds like laot to ask for in a makeup.I use the blotting papers but that only last for about 5 minutes then face is oily and shiny again.  HELP
