Default camoflage/concealors advice?

Im looking for some type of longwearing concealor to cover a textured bluish/grey birthmark on my elbow.
Because of the awkward position of my birthmark, right along the crease line of my , normal concealers simply wear off as soon as I move or close my arms. Apparently the inner elbow is composed of many sweat glands, which also depletes the wear of makeup used in this area.
Another problem, Ive found with using makeup in this area, is that it tends to gather, or clump, around the folds of my skin (of my inner elbow) and the texture of my scar (also when I move or close my arms).
Im looking for some sort of longwearing/water proof, high opacity concealer, or anything else, that might cover my birthmark.
Is there anything anyone could recommend?
Ive done alot of reaserch on all the brands refered to at this site (dermablend, dermacolor, colourtriaton, veil etc) but I need some advice before I try anything- Im on a very low income and cant really afford to experiment.
Thanks, I really appreciate your time!

Hi. I'm a member of Birthmarks.Com. It's a great place for information. My son is the one with the pws, so I don't pay too much attention to the make up tips. However, if I'm not mistaking they said that some department stores carried some brands...So, maybe you could check for a free demostration...
