Well, according to a tutorial by Le Sserafim’s makeup artist, the key to that spotlight-like radiance lies in a pink tone-up cream!

But not just any pink tone-up cream will do the trick; you need one that perfectly complements your skin tone for the best results.

Tone-up creams are a hybrid of makeup and skincare, designed not only to brighten your skin, but also combat hyperpigmentation and discolouration.

If you’ve been grappling with post-acne marks or those pesky freckles, a tone-up cream could be your go-to solution to reduce their appearance. Its primer-like formula also doubles as a makeup base, smoothing out pores and fine lines, creating the perfect canvas for your foundation!

A TikTok creator, @sarahkchey, unveils the wonders of this technique! Let’s break it down step by step.

For her, the Espoir Peach Skin Fitting Base is the perfect shade match. With its subtle peachy-pink hue, it effortlessly corrects the dullness and yellowness that can plague Asian skin.


She acknowledges that most tone-up creams can often leave her looking ashy, but when this product is applied with a makeup sponge, it blends seamlessly into her skin.


Its sheer formula effectively brightens dullness around her forehead and chin.


What’s more, it doesn’t leave her looking overly pale, greasy, or sticky – it’s all about that featherlight, breathable feel.


Just look at her even, glowing skin – all without the need for foundation!
