I've had the same problem with the dry skin on the eyelid (and even a patch down below). I never wear make-up consistently, but I hadn't changed anything and hadn't really worn make-up for a while when mine developed. My doctor told me to put some cortisone cream on the dry patches but never quite told me what my diagnosis was. The rest of it seems like allergies. With the way the weather has been going, the plants have been confused, but they seem to finally be in bloom around where I am.
