Kylie Jenner becomes world's youngest billionaire

Lydia FlemingMar 07, 2019

She added that the recognition "feels really good".

There's a lot to unpack when it comes to Jenner's feat, but social media users zeroed in on the term "self-made" - and not for the first time. In case you forgot, people were a little upset that the mag categorized her as "self-made".

Kylie's sales recently shot up to 360 million dollars in the year 2018 which has made her reach a fortune of ten - figures.

Due to her freshness on the list, Kylie doesn't have a "self made" number, but our guess is somewhere between one and Rupert Murdoch level.

While many argue that Kylie wouldn't have ventured into the cosmetics business if it wasn't for her sister Kim's sex tape getting leaked, she still technically fits the definition of "self-made".

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are trying to get their relationship back on track amid alleged cheating incident. "To say [Kris is] proud is the understatement of the year, I mean Kylie beat out Mark Zuckerberg, it's epic".

The cosmetics brand that Kylie Jenner started off in 2015 has been doing pretty well we take it, from the cool $360 billion it made in just the past year. Jenner has 128 million followers on Instagram alone, where she constantly posts about her new products. Much of the work is outsourced, such as to manufacturer Seed Beauty and retailer Shopify, but Jenner's social media fiefdom has supplied an endless demand for the products.

McGrath worked as a receptionist in the early 1990s to support her make-up artistry, before getting her big break working with i-D's then fashion editor. Her $29 lip kits sold out in Ulta stores across the nation and earned plenty for the Ulta organization.

In 2015, she took her mother's advice and launched her own line: Pat McGrath Labs. Previous year alone, her brand grew by an estimated whopping $360 million.

Kylie Jenner has made Forbes history becoming the youngest self-made billionaire of all time, at the age of 21.
