If you know anything about the KarJenners, you've probably heard people say they are famous for being famous, living off of family money and family drama, and not actually doing anything themselves. But Kylie Jenner is anything but a moocher.
According to Forbes, the 20-year-old makeup mogul has built an $800 million cosmetics business in just three years, and is set to become the youngest self-made billionaire. Ever. And it all began with a $29 lip kit consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner. Since then, "Kylie Cosmetics" has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup, including an estimated $330 million in 2017.
After factoring in money she has made from endorsements and television programs, Kylie is worth over $900 million, making her the youngest on Forbes' America's Richest Self-Made Women rankings, and the soon to be the youngest self-made billionaire ever (surpassing Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23).
Yet how did she gain all this success so quickly? "Social media is an amazing platform," Kylie told Forbes. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers." Kylie is not just a successful entrepreneur, but a style icon. With over 110 million followers on Instagram, she's an influencer on the highest level.
And while she's the youngest in a famous family, she always wanted to forge her own path. "I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own," she recalled. She also shared, in a recent feature with Vogue, "Finally [I found] something that was mine and I loved. [It was] the best feeling in the world.”
We could not be more proud!
