Faiers: I rely on false lashes
Sam Faiers has no eyelashes as she pulls them out
The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers has revealed she relies on false eyelashes more than most Essex girls - because she has no real lashes.
The reality TV star and model, 21, is regularly snapped out and about with immaculate make-up and thick, long lashes.
But in an extract from her new book, published in The Sun, Sam confessed: "I normally wear two pairs, to get a really thick, dramatic look... for me false eyelashes are especially important because I suffer from trichotillomania, which means I pull my eyelashes out. That sounds weird, I know!"
She added: "Although not many people know it, I don't actually have any lashes at all. Sometimes little short ones will appear but I pull them out again before they have a chance to grow."
Sam, who developed the problem when she was a child, said she has come to terms with her lack of lashes.
"I probably will try to overcome the problem eventually, but I don't feel I have the time for it at the moment. I still don't normally talk about it. It's just those close to me that know - until now," she admitted.
"My family and boyfriends say I look beautiful either way, although I guess they have to say that! I can see that other people are surprised the first time they see me without my lashes or make-up."
Sam's book, Living Life The Essex Way, is out on Thursday.
