What’s the secret behind their luminous “spotlight skin”?

Fondly known as “spotlight skin”, this refers to luminous, clear skin that looks as though there’s a light shining on it.

Curious about the secret of your favourite K-pop idols’ “spotlight skin”?

Well, according to a tutorial by Le Sserafim’s makeup artist, the key to that spotlight-like radiance lies in a good pink tone-up cream – one that perfectly complements your skin tone!

What exactly is a tone-up cream?

Tone-up creams are a hybrid of makeup and skincare, designed not only to brighten your skin, but also combat hyperpigmentation and discoloration. They can effortlessly transform your complexion, giving it a glowing boost even before you apply any makeup.

If you’ve been grappling with post-acne marks or those pesky freckles, a tone-up cream can 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!

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 this product, when applied with a beauty sponge, blends seamlessly into her skin.


Its sheer consistency effectively corrects 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!
