In brief: Yes

Yes. Blepharitis is caused by blocked up oil glands which lead to inflammation.
Inflammation lead to bleed vessel dilation, fluid accumulation, and secondary puffiness.

In brief: Possibly

Blepharitis is an infection of the eyelashes.
Usually it is localized to one eyelid. If both eyes are puffy another cause is more likely.
