Do any of you hexperience allergic type reactions to makeup?

Do any of you have an issue with wearing makeup? I never did until about a year ago. At that time I was experiencing several what seemed to be allergic reactions to God knows what. I have since changed diet and a lot of other things including a change in dosage of Synthroid and added T3 but after an entire year of no makeup I tried yesterday to just put a tiny bit of hypoallergenic mascara on and by late afternoon my eyes were itching like crazy. I totally hate the idea of not being able to use makeup at least once in a while but have no idea if there is possibly products out there that I am unaware of that I could use. Anyone have suggestions?
