Have you tried Sheer Glow? It’s similar to Sheer Matte, light to medium coverage, light weight, looks more natural just not as matte but not super dewy!
You might also like Urban Decay Naked, Makeup Forever Face & Body, and Lancome Teint Miracle! All of these have a satin finish so they have a slight glow but not overly dewy and all of these are more light weight not too thick.
I have oily skin too and I prefer foundations with more of a glow which isnt always best at keeping you shine free. So just make sure you use a good primer or oil controlling moisturizer under your foundation so you can still stay shine free even with a more glowing foundation. Translucent powders are also great for controlling oils but arent too matte/powdery so it will keep that glow and since it’s colorless it looks very natural :)
Sadly summer is coming to an end, but thats okay because I am more than ready for hot coco, leaves on the ground and big sweaters! Time to put away the warm, peaches and corals and whip out the wines, mauves and pinks. Below I have listed great blush options for any budget. :)

For hooded eyes I highly recommend highlighting your brow bone and inner corner (pupil area) with a shimmery or matte cream, off white eyeshadow! This will give the illusion your eye is slightly lifted.
Also stay away from applying dark colors all over the lid and using balck eyeliner on the water line. Using a white or nude color eyeliner on the water line will make your eyes look bigger and more open. MAC and Rimmel both make nude and white eyeliners. :)
Lastly keep darker shadows in the outer half of the eye. This will give the illusion of more of a crease and dimension.
As for contouring your nose, use a cool, almost grey looking brown matte powder to look like real shadows. Either an eyeshadow, bronzer or darker face powder all work well! You can also use a darker shade of concealer or foundation. Using an eyeshadow blending brush tends to work best for me because it’s small enough and blends at the same time.
