The famed makeup mogul continues to kill it.

The world erupted with divisive opinions when Forbes officially named Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made billionaire back in March 2019, with her friends, family, and fans applauding her on the great feat. On the other hand, there were plenty of people who hated this, accusing the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who was born into an extremely famous family, of not being self-made in the slightest. Well, whatever you think about the mom-of-one, it looks like not much has changed in 2020. As reported by Forbes, Kylie now holds the title for the second year in a row.

Kylie is among a very special group of peers, being just one of ten billionaires under the age of 30. At just 22, Kylie has started her own makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, along with a skincare brand, Kylie Skin. These ventures, along with other sponsorships, TV appearances, and her clothing line alongside sister Kendall Jenner, simply titled Kendall + Kylie, have catapulted her in terms of both stardom and in wealth.

When Forbes first announced Kylie as a self-made billionaire, a huge population of users on social media went wild with anger. Even Dictionary.com threw shade, tweeting out the definition of "self-made" as, "having succeeded in life unaided." This was just one of the many negative reactions to the news.

Thankfully, Kylie has used her insane wealth to give back. Most recently, she donated $1 million towards face masks and other protective gear for healthcare workers combating COVID-19. Fans are glad to hear that as she continues to succeed financially, she also helps those in need. We hope she continues to aid those affected by the pandemic.
