Did you try blotting with special blotting papers?  Those are supposed to remove oil without disturbing makeup (not sure if they work with airbrush makeup, but it might be worth a try).

Sounds like you need powder or primer.

stop wiping your face with a napkin DUH! lol j/k I would try blotting papers like the previous pp said. Or I would pick a different person/place to do my makeup.

I like to finsh off my makeup with a setting spray.  There are several brands out there-Kat Von D and Urban Decay both make them.

I am getting airbrush for my wedding day, but then my MUA is going to set the airbrush with powder.  The main reason she’s doing that is b/c I didn’t like the shinier “dewy” look that airbrush creates.  I want something more matte.  Perhaps you could have your MUA do the same thing?  I had no problems with my makeup lasting at least 12 hours after my trial.

Did your MUA use a setting spray or powder? Urban Decay De-Slick is a great setting spray. Use it under AND over your make-up to stay shine-free.
