Menopause and oily skin

Has anyone had trouble with oily skin while they went through the Pause?  I am 50 and don’t have many symptoms of menopause, but all of a sudden my skin is oily like when I was a teen.  I don’t get any pimples, but make up just melts away after about an hour.  I have tried primers and oil absorbing primers (Avon makes a good one) but they only help for a while.  If I use a powder foundation, I get makeup that settles into fine lines.
