If you follow Samantha Faiers on Instagram, you’ll know that her social page is bursting with adorable snaps of her gorgeous family. But the star recently took a break from her usual mum-life content to answer some pressing questions from her 2.5 million followers.

In a Q&A on her Instagram stories, Sam was asked various questions about her life – and the Mummy Diaries star didn’t hold back, as she opened up about her struggle with hair pulling disorder trichotillomania, which has caused her to lose her eyelashes.

“How is your trichotillomania?” one fan asked. “I also struggle with pulling my lashes.”

Sam bravely responded to the question publicly, writing “not great, I’ve honestly tried almost everything you could possibly do”.

The TOWIE star admitted that the disorder causes her to pick her lashes in her sleep.

“It’s really hard to get it under control and reverse 23 years of pulling,” she says.

Sam admitted to struggling with the condition in 2019 in an exclusive interview with OK!, where the star revealed she was undergoing hypnotherapy treatment for her compulsive disorder.

But it appears that the mum-of-two is yet to beat her condition as she asked fans on her Instagram story “if anyone has the miracle answer, please share.”

Trichotillomania is a disorder that causes sufferers to pull out the hair on their head, eyebrows or, like Sam, their eyelashes.

The gorgeous star revealed that she usually wears “a little eyeliner” to conceal the issue, adding that she’s “always been too scared to get the tattoo”.

Fans were also eager to know which false eyelashes Sam wears, to which the star replied by tagging brand Tatti Lashes.

“I love natural lashes in my older age,” she says, “The days are over from doubling up.”

Last year, Sam revealed she’d be wearing the Tatti Lashes 3D Lashes, £7.95 here.

The star shared a close-up video of the wipsy TL14 style which are perfect for “everyday” make-up looks or bare-faced days.

Sam found time to answer some further beauty questions on her Q&A, revealing her go-to foundation is the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, £43 here, in shade 5.5.
