over-washing - over-washing
You actually may be over-washing. Try washing your face just in the morning and then at night before bed. You need to make sure your moisturizer is not oily or even oil based. I started using Bare Essentials/Bare Minerals make-up and since it's a powder I don't get the oily patches like I used to.

Maybe you need to get a different type of foundation? You can get Matte finish ones that don't go all shiny or oily. And you could also use a powder on top to help

Why do you even need to wear a make up at school. you aare not going to a fashion show but to study at a school and your parents are paying for your education by their hard earned money. Do you go to school to attract guys and then party around with them. Anyways even if you want to weara makeup, just wear a light make up which is always liked by guys, never wear a heavy makeup which will always be spoined as you have seen.

Find a mosituriser that controls oil shine, most people have oil in certain places of their face. Usually the T'zone the are around your eyebrows and down your nose. Use a lose powder and dust it over your face during the day to control the shine. The also have many brands of oil control paper. These are usually blue and feel of plastic, they can be found in most highstreet shops that sell beauty and cosmetic products. You just open the pack rub over the oily areas of your face and the oil transfers onto the paper.
