In brief: 2 Double whammies

Dry Eye syndrome with contact lens wear is a recipe for disaster. Then wearing mascara and eye makeup that flakes/ particles can get in the eyes, under the contact lens, and irritate the cornea and conjuctiva.
See your eye doctor soon to discuss. You may not be an ideal CL wearer. Switch to glasses now, and hold off of the eye make up until you've been evaluated. Then discuss options available.
