There is much more chances of dirt if you have oily skin,due to this your face looks dull.You must take a special care for oily skin.The first thing to do is maintain healthy diet.Don't take oily food or deep fried foods,take good sleep and take more water.

As far as makeup is concerned,apply ice before makeup after applying ice apply pancake,after applying pancake apply ice again.After this apply your makeup.For oily skin always use waterproof makeups.This won't let your makeup go away if you sweats.I'm not a beautician but just few suggestions.Try it you'll feel better.

ice is good, but your skin will turn oily within a few hours anyway. my suggestion: use a good primer! it may be a little pricey, but it is worth it. if you can't afford an extremely good one, you can always powder your face again.

As far as makeup is concerned,apply ice before makeup after applying ice apply pancake,after applying pancake apply ice again. Do you really mean pancake as in the one we eat with syrup?! Wouldn't my face be dirty is I apply pancake on my face after icing it? I've never tried ice because it melts so fast in my country but I'll be sure to do that as I'll be attending a party soon enough.

I also have to agree with Chique, a good primer should do the trick! My skin still becomes oily with a primer so don't expect it to make all the oiliness disappear, but it will definitely prolong the oil secretion time. :) Hopefully by then the party or wedding that you'll be attending is over. :)

^ i think he means like a compact powder instead of "pancake" LMAO if your face is still oily, and you don't want to keep layering on powder, you can always invest in oil blotting tissues :D

There are number of cosmetics creams or oils are available in the markets.These cosmetics control the oily actions and maintain your skin normally.You can use mac oil control lotion and others to handle this problem.You will have no problem due to sweating and oily problems that is natural for you.

To counteract oily skin and to keep foundation from sliding off when you sweat, try using a makeup primer or makeup base. The silicone in makeup primers will help hold your foundation in place. I have found from personal experience that powder foundations slide off less quickly than liquid foundations so you could try that over a base.

This happens to me as well. You need to get any of the long lasting makeups that are on the market, almost every major company makes them, and foundation, lipsticks, mascara, are available that all last all day no matter what. They won't sweat off your face.

It sounds funny but milk of magnesium should help, people with oily skin use it as a primer!

For oily skin and to prevent makeup from sweating off I would avoid using any heavy foundations or concealers. Instead opt for moisturizers and creams that have a slight colour to them which will give your face a great look and will stay on your face much longer.

I am tired of this situation for myself, after getting ready for an party, there is lot of sweating on my face and that disturbs my entire effort put on makeup, the main problem is of sweating and how can i get rid of it.

Maybe you should use a lighter foundation. Heavier foundations clog pores and cause an access release of sebum (the skin's natural oils). You can try substituting foundations for tinted moisturizers or bb creams that will stay on your face for a good portion of the day and won't look greasy or oily.

Best way is to carry a stainless steel water bottle with you and sip frequently.
Cool off before application.
Apply oil free primer before putting on your foundation, but after your moisturizer.
Liquid eyeliners also last longer and use waterproof Mascara
Also consider a light BB cream or foundation, and apply a bit of bronzer to the cheeks, nose, and chin.
