Kylie Jenner might be the baby of the Kardashian-Jenner family, yet she’s headed for getting to be a standout amongst the best and most youthful female entrepreneurs in United states.
20 years of age makeup mogul she turns 21 on Aug. 10, Jenner was named one of America’s richest self-made women as she graced the front of Forbes’ positioning of the best female businesswomen.
A mother, a reality television turned social media superstar, and now an almost-billionaire. The Lip Kit mogul is worth around $900 million, which means that at just 20 years old, Jenner is on track to become the “youngest self-made billionaire ever,” regardless of gender.
For comparison’s sake, Forbes reports that Mark Zuckerberg became a billionaire at age 23 and Evan Spiegel hit the billionaire mark at some point in his early 20s with Snapchat.
Even when Jenner turns 21 in August, she’ll still be on her way to becoming the youngest of the crew, all thanks to Kylie Cosmetics, Keeping Up With the Kardashians cash, and product endorsements with Puma and PacSun.
After launching her namesake makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, Jenner’s used her loyal fanbase and powerful social media platform to catapult the brand into one of the fastest growing companies in the beauty business.
Jenner credits her more than 100 million social media followers as the key to her success. “Social media is an amazing platform,” she says in the Forbes cover story. “I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.”
Forbes reports that Kylie Cosmetics has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since its initial launch, which includes an estimated $330 million in 2017 alone. Combining all of the mogul’s profits, Forbes estimates the brand alone is worth nearly $800 million, which Jenner maintains sole ownership of.
Not only is Jenner following in the footsteps of the maven who raised her by capitalizing on her social media fame to become a self-made billionaire, she also appears to have adopted the sharp sense of style and uniform that comes with the Kris Jenner way of presenting oneself to the world, as she can be seen with her slicked-back hair, practical low-bun, and all-black power suit in her photoshoot with Forbes. You know how the old saying goes—like momager, like daughter.
