    Complementary colors

Applying a thick layer of foundation produces an unnatural finish. To overcome this, we developed a technology that takes advantage of light properties.

For example, when you shine green light onto red light, which has opposing light properties, the red is canceled out and becomes invisible. By the same token, when you shine yellow light onto blue light, the blue becomes invisible (Figure 1).

These pairs of colors are called complementary colors (Figure 2), and Perfect Cover Foundation was inspired by this theory of light.

When we look at an object, the reflected light determines what color we see. For example, red skin discoloration appears red because red light is reflected more strongly. Perfect Cover Foundation can control the wavelengths of light. On red discoloration, it lets only green light through to obscure the redness. When it is applied to blue discoloration, it lets only yellow light through to diminish the blue tone. On brown discoloration, it lets only blue light through to camouflage the brown tone.

Water-touch-fit Formula
Infused with a generous amount of moisture to spread effortlessly and fit over the skin.
