Not that i know of: As far I know, the answer to all those question is no. Wearing makeup can definitely cause irritation, cogged pores etc. but if you are not having a problem then you are probably ok. I would recommend talking to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon (like myself) to get on a good skin care regimen if you are concerned.
