Default desperate for advice HELP ME???

camoflage/concealors advice?
on: August 23, 2004, 04:51:01 am

------------------------------------------------------------------------Sorry....Im posting this message again because some detaills were lost in my last one!
Hi,
Im looking for some type of longwearing concealor to cover a textured bluish/grey birthmark on my inner elbow.
Because of the awkward position of my birthmark, right along the crease line of my inner arm/elbow, 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 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!

Liola,

Try Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer. It's a bit pricey, but I have PWS on the right side of my face and go through a tube about every four months. Just apply, feather on edges, and cover with a COLORED pressed powder (never translucent) like Cover Girl.

Best of luck.

Lyn
