As we were reading Nylon's interview with the adorable Abigail Breslin, our eyes kept straying back to her picture and the vibrant blue eyeshadow.

Breslin is young (she's 13) and although some people might still cringe at the thought of young girls wearing "adult" makeup, the truth is, they all do.

The key is keeping it simple and fun -- like makeup artist Talia Shobrook did for Breslin for the Nylon shoot-- with one pop of color and no other makeup.

"It's a cute party look," Shobrook told StyleList. "Rather than looking seductive. We don't want that."

Shobrook emphasizes using color only on the top lid "otherwise it becomes a smoky eye, which is too serious for a 13-year-old. Adding glitter or gloss to break it up also makes it not so serious."

For this shoot she used Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Electric Blue on the lids and Sephora Glitter Eyeliner along the lash line.

Most teens can -- and should -- go without foundation, so Shobrook recommends "tinted moisturizer if you need a bit of coverage. And rather than powder, use blotting papers for shine."

On the lips, tinted lip balm is all a young girl needs.

Ah, youth -- when else in your life can you get away with wearing glitter and no foundation?
