    Well, yes, eye makeup can lead to eye styes. According to some researches, eye styes can be caused by eye infection. And when you use eye makeup can make your eyes look beautiful, but on the other hand, your eyes may get infection because of it too. So when your eyes get eye infection, it is possible to have eye styes. To relieve it, you can just use a cool tea bag and put it on your eyes. Just do this for a few times everyday. After several days, it can relieve your symptom. Also, heating a piece of garlic will work wonders if done right. And then you can just put heated garlic on stye and hold until garlic cools. Anyway, just have a try.

    Yes, it is possible to cause the eye styes because of eye makeup because of the eyes infection. As we know, the eye makeup contain the stimulating irritates which will be sensitive to the skin around the eyes. If you want to do the eye makeup to make the eyes look beautiful and charming, you should wash the eyes clearly with no makeup in the eyes.

    Yes, I think it is possible. Wearing too much heavy eye makeup might cause a sty to develop, especially you share the makeup with someone else. A sty is an acute secretory glands infection in eyelids. It is usually caused by blocked oil glands which produce oil to lubricate eyes. Since the oil glands are blocked, the oil will build up and extrude out resulted in a red, painful and nodular lump. In some cases, the lump will subside when the glands blockage is opened. In some cases, you can see the white or yellow point at top of the lump, which will clear off after the pus is drained. Heavy eye makeup might block the glands easily. If the lump lingers longer, it is easily to get infection and inflammation which make it more painful. If you want to prevent it, try not to wear eye makeup or make up lightly. Use the specialized eye makeup remover each time before wash your face. Apply warm compress for about 10 minutes each time, 3-4 times per day. Don't squeeze the lump which might cause infection, but you can massage tenderly. Antibiotic ointment or eye drops could help too.
