Adding whitening effect to a primer

Hi All,

I formulated a primer and want to add a little bit of "whittening effect" to it (white cast but not very obvious). Should I add titanium dioxide or zinc oxide or both? I am not looking for achieving for any sun protection, just a cosmetic brightening effect.

Thank you in advance!
