Summer is coming to an end and i can foresee the sun-kissed make up fading off.

Having naturally tanned skin, it is really kind of a headache to create the fair, translucent and rosy look without looking like a sick geisha.

So today i’m trying to achieve a fairer, rosier make-up instead of the normal 1 shade darker base i like to use.^^

And the best part of it? The foundation doesn’t only make you fairer instantly, it also has an actual whitening effect to your skin.

Warning: Scary no-make photos.


So this is before with zero make up.

For base i’m using Loreal’s new White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation.

My inspiration is Ogihara Momoko !

Her make up is always very very adult smokey/bronzy and she has her signature violet lips!

And Momoko really has very flawless fair skin and it goes really well with the purplish tone!

So i’m re-creating this look with my new everyday-foundation.



Nowadays being fair is no longer the priority. Healthy looking skin is! Therefore this is the first powder foundation with skincare properties infused with the power of whitening!



There are only 2 steps for pearly radiant skin:

Step 1: Whitening Powder Foundation

The secret formula to this foundation is the groundbreaking key ingredient : White Pearl Complex that consists of Vitamin Cp+, Advanced Melanin-Block™ and SPF19 PA++ that instantly conceal spots, whilst even out skin tone with long-lasting fairness effect.

How to: Use the skin-color foundation part with light, short strokes, apply in downward direction to even out under eyes and blend out unevenness.

I’m using G1–Vanilla Ivory. At first i thought the shade is really too light for my tan skin, but surprisingly the texture is so light with a smooth finish that it just blends in and gives a translucent and pearly radiant skin.



Step 2: Highlighter with Pink Tourmaline

You see the special pink corner on the top left? That’s a pink highlighter with Tourmaline Gemstone that brightens up skin complexion, revealing a luminuous and rosy radiance.

How to: With the corner of the sponge lightly pad the Pink Highlighter on the foundation.


Apply on your  nose bridge.


And outer cheekbone.


Also above your eyebrow arches if you like, for a more contoured face shape!

I love the pink highlighter! It really gives you the luminous pearly effect! And your nose instantly looks higher too 😀

Lastly, Voila! the results with the Pink Highlighter, skin looks more luminuous with healthy rosy glow.


A comparison picture.


Continue your make up. I also use a purplish-pink blusher and violet lipstick. The foundation completes a very simple “basic makeup look” that is suitable for for everyday usage.

Now i can haz it too! ^^


I really love the compact size and the 2-in-1 function. You don’t have to purchase a separate face highlighter to brightened up your skin as this powder foundation comes with it. Totally value buy of having both in one compact!

And of course the best thing is its skincare benefits! A foundation that actually makes you fairer! Maybe in the future scientist can really design make up products that you can wear to sleep.

Purchase at only RM67.90 and it’s also convenient for replenishment as it has refills selling at RM48.90. You can get it from pharmacies or hypermarkets! Will be available in any of your nearest outlets.
