Visit an allergist in your area to discuss this issue. They might recommend patch testing to identify if you have a sensitivity to an ingredient in the makeup.

In brief: Allergy or Irritant?
This could represent a contact allergic reaction due to preservative, and fragrances in the cosmetics.
Even "hypoallergenic" products can cause a reaction, especially if your tissues are already irritated. It could also just be an irritant reaction due to a foreign product near the eyes. Either way i would discontinue the products and let the area return to normal.
