Okay, this is probably an extremely silly sort of question, so if it's kind of dumb, just ignoring it is fine. XD;
I have an oily facial complexion and usually in the Fall/Winter it can be helped, but in the summer(especially now even if I've washed my face) when it's humid and if I'm outside, I don't necessarily "sweat" a bunch, but it feels like oils are leaking from my pores all over.
Here comes the silly part:
Most of the oils feel like it's coming from my forehead and I actually get oily on my eyelids and around my eyebrows and if I'm wearing eye makeup, any sort, it sort of ends up leaking into my eyes(even waterproof) and stinging really badly. It's bad news if it happens when I'm driving or wearing contacts because if I smear it, it stings even more.
Does anyone have a suggestion how this problem can be helped or eliminated? I know clean and clear makes oil blotch sheets, I haven't tried it yet but they are sort of pricey.

Thanks for your time everyone :3

this is probably not the answer your looking for, but it sounds like not wearing make up on overly hot or humid days would be ultimate. Even thought the blotch sheets are pricey, a normal tissue would be better than nothing. Also make sure that there is little or no oil in your facial cleaning products, because that could add to it aswell. Hope this helped.~smiley
