Kylie Jenner likely to become youngest 'self-made' billionaire ever

How did Jenner make her fortune? Mama Kris Jenner stepped in from there, securing their own e-commerce platform to relaunch Kylie Lip Kits as Kylie Cosmetics on Shopify, where it just exploded.

In addition to bringing in millions from her families' reality shows and many more millions from product endorsement deals, Forbes estimates her booming makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth almost $800 million.

Forbes' Natalie Robehmed details how Kylie Cosmetics has found success both by harnessing Jenner's vast social media following and slashing costs by outsourcing labor.

Also on this year's list is her half-sister Kim Kardashian-West, who ranks with a net worth of $350 million by selling her followers a mobile game, emojis, and, most recently, cosmetics.

The 20-year-old's net worth has skyrocketed thanks to the success of Kylie Cosmetics. The current title holder is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg who became a billionaire at age 23. I have such easy access to my fans and my customers'.

Not to mention the millions she's earned from her many endorsement deals, TV appearances and retail goods from the Kendall + Kylie Clothing brand she shares with sister Kendall Jenner.

"Before I even refreshed the page, everything was sold out", Jenner said.


As Radar readers know, Kim and Kylie have been involved in a battle of the influencers ever since Kylie's lip injections and makeup line launched her massive career.

"It has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330m in 2017".

"I said, 'I'm ready to put up my own money".

Jenner's company only has seven full-time and five part-time employees. In a cover story about the 20-year-old multi-millionaire, Forbes conservatively values the company at $800 million, with an estimated $330 million in sales last year.

Jenner told Forbes that she invested $250,000 of her own money from modeling gigs in 2015 to pay an outside company to produce the first 15,000 lip kits that eventually launched into a full-fledged cosmetic line.

"Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi, if she's into it."
