Hi everyone, i just wanna ask for tips... our country is hot because its a tropical country, that's why i sweat a lot in my face and also especially in forehead, and i'm also have oily face...

First, try to find skin care items to help reduce the oiliness. These are usually oil-free products, and sometimes labeled as "mattifying".
To combat the sweating, look up clown makeup online. Products such as Proface No-Sweat are applied to skin before makeup, and help reduce sweating.
I also recommend blotting papers, as they can eliminate oil before you reapply powder throughout the day. Good luck and hope this gives you some ideas!

foundation, concealer, contour! (this makes it a little less obvious you have makeup on but alsp brings out your face shapes), then a light blush or bronzer (since you are a guy you dont want a really pink blush, just a little tinge so that you dont look pale) then powder.

Here's a great tutorial for someone like Lelouch. You may not need colored powder, as it should come in a colorless version, called "translucent". Loose powder looks like baby powder, but it also comes in a compact, which is easier to travel with.

Some people use bronzer. I also use eyeshadow. Either can work just fine.

If you want a very smooth flawless finish you need to use a primer under your makeup

When you're contouring, you want to make sure that whatever you use is a matte color. Anything with shimmer will just bring attention to the area when the point of contouring is to add shadows. I've used bronzers before but sometimes they're too light for contouring since my tan is permanent haha. Powdered foundation is probably my favorite thing to use since it's usually matte and comes in a variety of shades.

I don't know if you have it in your country but L'Oreal True Match Powder Foundation is a great powder for oily skin (I have oily skin too and it's my favorite everyday foundation) and has absolutely no sparkle in it.

USE A FINISHING SPRAY! It will keep your makeup on your face even if you sweat. Here's my routine.
Moisturizer on face after cleansing, primer, foundation, a teensy bit more pimer then translcent powder which is also called setting powder then finishing spray. It keeps your makeup on you face for hours. For the fixing spray also called finishing spray, i'd recommend the Skindinavia spray. This will keep your makeup from sliding off even if you are sweating and dont forget your primer! And since you have an oily face you should put moisturizer before putting on makeup because if you dont, your face will start producing more oil because it will think your face needs to be moisturized. I use smashboxx camera ready bb cream and this is a life saver for me. It has a tinit moisturizer, primer, spf 30 sunblock, concealer, foundation, oil control, its oil free, and it even help improves your face.
You can buy the skindinavia here www.skindinavia.com
The translucent powder i use is the n0.7 setting powder.
