How to keep mu looking good through the day with combination skin? rop

I always wear mineral foundation, have done for over 10 years and love it. However, throughout the day I find my foundation can start to look patchy especially on t-zone where I am oilier. I powder with Rimmel Stay Matte but after a bit it can start to look cakey which I hate the look of. I use a water based mattifying primer underneath (dont like silicons).

My question is how can I continue to use my usual mineral makeup but keeping oil control through the day and not just with mattifying powder like Stay Matte?

Also, along the same lines how can I keep my makeup looking fresh all day?

Thank you
