If the whiteface is a male pearl he is still molting out his pearls and hasn't reached adulthood yet. There's also the possibility he is actually a she, unless you had him DNA tested its pretty hard to tell in birds. So the root of this issue is age and sex of the suspected male.

If you're positive the pearl is a male, pair him with any other mutation except pearl to produce healthy pearl hens in the nest. Preferably, with a hen that is split whiteface as well. After he reaches age and molts his pearls.

The lutino can be paired with a split lutino cock to pass on this mutation and produce lutino mutation of both sex.
