My sister and I would have to prime out face before foundation.  Milk of Magnesia worked for me.  I only do this for those days when I want my makeup to stay put.  It’ll still get a little oily but nothing too crazy.  //  Most days I wear Shisheido 42 SPF foundation and it seems to stay on my face all day.  The colors are very limited, though.

Mac fluidline gel eyeliner comes in a pot. Have you tried it?

I’m half-Asian so I feel some of your pain with eyeshape. I’m also pretty oily so keeping stuff on my face can be a challenge.

For eyes I really like Urban Decays Primer Potion. It’s my favorite out of all the ones I’ve tried and keeps my eyeshadow on my eyelids and uncreased even if the rest of my face looks like an oil slick. Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencils are really good for eyeliner and I second MAC’s fluidline for gel eyeliner.

For the face I really recommend using a good primer. I’m currently using Tarte’s clean slate but I also like Smashbox’s Photo Finish primer. Setting your makeup with a setting spray also seems to really help. I use Urban Decay’s All Nighter usually but a lot of people seem happy with MAC’s spray and there are tutorials to make your own.

Also blotting papers. I love these things and have a pack in all my purses so I don’t get caught without them. They’re great for blotting oil during the day and removing shine without messing up your makeup or requiring a full touch up. Boscia’s green tea papers are amazing but the cheaps ones work well too.

@Ribbit:  Ditto on all this except I use Too Faced’s version of the eyeshadow primer. I would definitely recommend researching the brushes you use to apply your makeup. For example my primer and creams I use a synthetic brush bc I feel it helps set it better and for my powders I use a brush with natural hairs.
