In brief: Find the cause
It is best to be tested.
A "patch test" with multiple chemicals in cosmetics. Then avoid the ones with the one you are sensitive an allergist or a dermatologist can test you. Remove all chemicals from around eyes, hands and finger nails. Wait till the rash resolves. Use one eye shadow and then wait 3 days. If no rash develops then you know that one is safe. Remember this is a delayed reaction.
