What is the mutation and age? Does it exhibit any male behaviors (whistling, heart wings, beak banging)?
Pictures would be VERY helpful along with that information.

Yellow/white face ONLY works for "normals", i.e. normal greys, normal cinnamons, normal whitefaces, etc.
Sexing a pearl is easy once it has reached a certain age. Males molt their pearls out (or at least most of them) by their first and second molts. So if your bird has its pearls above a year I would have to say its a female.
Like mentioned above, once you have pied or lutino thrown into the mix, it becomes very difficult to sex. I would recommend going by behavior or DNA testing.
