A brand new technology, the latest, in eye makeup - introducing the Max Factor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascara. Described as tonal, this black mascara contains light reflecting particles that are invisible and brighten and enrich the colour of either blue or green or brown eyes. There are three separate products - Black Pearl for brown eyes, Black Sapphire for blue eyes and Black Ruby for green eyes. The enhancing effects of this brilliant new mascara are made possible by the formula of invisible light reflecting particles and added gem-toned colour beads which customise the reflected light to enrich each eye colour, blue, brown or green. On application, I found it is featherlight. Gliding on smoothly, it really lights up your eyes and eye colour in the most natural way, an amazing effect of this hi-tech product! Product user reviews I read found this mascara lengthened also. Promising to volumise your eye lashes, and it does, by up to 300%, this product is a wonder product - it's highly advanced. Available for Brown eyes (the one I tested - pictured), Blue eyes or Green eyes, the Max Factor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascara. £7.99. Find at Superdrug and Boots stores nationwide or online.

| David Bowie 'Young Americans' Album March 7 1975 |
Photography: Eric Stephen Jacobs
The album cover photograph to 'Young Americans', released in March 1975,
is David Bowie post-Ziggy Stardust (1972), when he played the alien rock superstar visiting from outer space. Against the grey of
Bowie's clothing, his colouring is the same orange red. The
backlighting in the photograph frames his face, suggesting something
romantic, mysterious and glamorous. The smoke from Bowie's cigarette
rises slowly. His bangles are glinting, Seventies and cosmic. The entire effect
is painterly and beautiful. The makeup he wears is perfect.

As we advance, technology is at our finger tips in the consistency of our face creams and cosmetics - the microscopy of the skin cell, computers and technology in the content of the products we apply. Prescriptives: Monocream. Helena Rubenstein: Power A. Shu Uemura: Cell Fusion Al. Chanel: Cyber Lumiere. These days, makeup is as advanced as the photographic techniques used to capture its effects in beauty and fashion shoots in magazines where the newest and most technically advanced beauty products are showcased first. The designer Hussein Chalayan presented his Remote-Control Aeroplane at a fashion show I attended in 1999, advancing ideas about clothing and technology in the process. The effect on your skin of your foundation cream or eye shadow now looks even more like a photo in a magazine, completed by digital airbrushing, the perfecting effect of 21st century technology, makeup and skincare included. Products like Revlon's Photoready Compact Makeup with Liquefying Screen demonstrate this as do face and body creams which are an intimate biotechnology occurring close to the skin.
