With $900m fortune, Kylie Jenner set to become youngest self-made billionaire

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

She launched it two years ago with a $29 lip kit containing a lipstick and lip liner.

"You guys, imagine this, but all in lip kits", said Kylie Jenner during her interview with the Billionaires magazine Forbes, "I think it needs to be a clear vending machine where you see all the colors".

Kylie Jenner is the youngest person to make Forbes' annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women. Couple that with her many, many endorsements and her role on hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Jenner is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire, male or female, in history, effectively unseating Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook's Zuckerberg now holds the title after he became a billionaire at the age of 23.

"I said, 'I'm ready to put up my own money". Jenner owns 100% of it.

She has more than 110 million followers on Instagram, 25.6 million on Twitter and 16.4 million follow her company directly. Just yesterday, Forbes named her "the youngest-ever self-made billionaire". She told Forbes that social is "an wonderful platform" because she has "such easy access to my fans and my customers". The magazine estimates her worth at $900 million, on par with Jay-Z, the wealthiest man in hip-hop at age 48.

US service member killed in ‘insider’ attack in Afghanistan; 2 more wounded
The service branch of the troops and the province in which the suspected attack occurred have not been made public. Alliance officials said the two wounded service members were in stable condition and receiving medical treatment.

The 20-year-old reality star also shared a precious snap of Stormi lying on her chest while wearing a white onesie. Thanks to this minuscule overhead and marketing costs, Forbes writes, the profits are outsize and go directly to Jenner. I'm so blessed to do what I love every day.

Jenner said she hopes to pass her business down to her daughter, Stormi: "If she's into it", she said.

While the cover spot itself wasn't an issue (another Kar-Jenner on front of a glossy is nothing novel, these days-not even for Forbes), many readers pointed out that the title "self-made" doesn't acknowledge the major head start she had in her business. "That, in turn, has helped the nation's most successful women become richer than ever before".
