I have a small bathroom with a shower and no fan. I have painted one coat, tan color, satin finish. After showers you can see the moisture running down the walls. It needs 2nd coat. Should I change Paint finish? Any suggestions?

Not a paint problem, it's a ventilation problem. We encounter this often and I always suggest some sort of sheen in a bath room.

If you use a flat, not only will you have the moisture running down the walls, but it will leave the finish discolored. Other than adding an exhaust fan, and most helpful would be a high volume fan, you will need to be sure to leave the door ajar slightly to help allow the air to circulate.
