Although you could get an infection from shared cosmetics,lashes, I doubt this has happened. Your tissue likely had an allergic response to the material used to attach the lashes.A simple eye wash and or artificial tears can help you in the near term and avoid using the lashes. If allergic,it will improve slowly,if infected this should help until you are seen.
