Kylie Jenner set to become youngest self-made billionaire on Forbes list

Kylie Jenner set to become youngest self-made billionaire on Forbes list

Within the next year, she's set to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, besting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Snapchat king Evan Spiegel.

Thing is, explains The Daily Mail, people aren't thrilled with Forbes for calling Jenner a "self-made billionaire". Half-sister of Kim Kardashian West, who is also on the list for the first time, Jenner has leveraged her massive social media following (110 million followers on Instagram) to build a Dollars 900 million cosmetics empire Kylie Cosmetics in less than three years.

The math may add up, but the term "self made" is a stretch to say the least considering she has spent most of her life starring in one of the most successful reality shows ever.

Writer Roxane Gay stated that it wasn't actually shade to point out that Jenner "isn't self-made".

Jenner, who gave birth to her daughter Stormi in February, said social media was her ultimate platform to reach out to her fans and customers.

On Putin's wish list: an end to US military exercises in Europe and the scaling back of USA forces there. Much of the rest of Trump's foreign policy is equally freakish .

Forbes reports that Kylie sold a whopping $630 million worth of makeup when the brand initially launched, and a whopping $330 million in 2017. They valued her company at almost $800 million and she owns 100 percent of it. But it was always makeup that Kylie was passionate about. (In 2015, she admitted to getting temporary ones.) So, the reality star made a decision to capitalize on everyone's obsession.

"I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own", she told the magazine, before eventually locking down seven-figure modeling gigs and endorsement deals with high-profile retailers at the behest of her "momager" Kris.

When the lip kits went on sale in November 2015, they sold out in seconds, but Kylie said it wasn't always smooth sailing. By the end of 2016, the company was selling a line of about 50 products with a revenue of about $307 million, according to Forbes.

The bulk of her income is derived from Kylie Cosmetics, best known for its lip kits.

Kylie's boyfriend and Stormi's father, Travis Scott, couldn't be more proud of his girlfriend for her impressive accomplishment. Perhaps that's a sign of a new trend to come.
