Vroom, vroom, vroom!

This weekend marks the annual Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal (June 8-10). Whether you’ll be in the stands or watching from home, here are two auto-inspired beauty looks to test drive this weekend.

Flaming Nails:  Take a cue from Prada’s Spring 2012 runway motif and nod to the Grand Prix with some fiery nails. Not the artistic type? Try an ombré look by starting with a solid red coat and gradually adding in orange and yellow for a flame effect.

FLARE picks: Joe Fresh nail polish in Heat Wave, Orange Sorbet, and Canary, $4 each or 3 for $10, joefresh.com

Racer Stripe Eyes:  Bold swipes of coloured liquid liner are not for the timid, but the ideal way to shake up your routine. For a look like this, you’ll want to stick with a smudge-proof formula. Prepare the lid with an eyeshadow primer to keep the colour rich, and finish off with a setting spray for extra staying power.

FLARE picks: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $23, Eyeshadow Primer Potion, $24, and All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $14, all sephora.com
