Kylie Jenner Is Officially The Youngest 'Self-Made' Billionaire Ever

Jenner was 10 years old when her family's massively successful reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", premiered. To be self-made by Forbes' standards, someone has to build a company or establish a fortune instead of inheriting some or all of it.

Kylie Jenner ranks a 7, which means she qualifies as someone "who got a head start from wealthy parents and moneyed background", Forbes reported. With a makeup company of her own (KKW Beauty), Kim's the second-richest in the family - and she, along with sisters Kourtney, 39, Khloe, 34, and Kendall, 23, would all love to join the rich rich club. "But the term is very broad", the magazine acknowledges, "and does not adequately reflect how far some people have come and, relatively speaking, how much easier others have had it". "Leveraging fame and fortune from your pedigree is NOT self-made".

Jenner has used social media platforms, such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to sell her products to her 175 million plus fans that follow her.

Jenner owns Kylie Cosmetics, the three-year-old beauty business that generated an estimated $360 million in sales a year ago.

Appering to claim Liam's star is fading since One Direction split in 2016, Piers lashed: "Mate, no offence but I really wouldn't play the relevancy card right now". She admitted in May 2015 to having temporary lip fillers, and the business instincts she inherited from her mother kicked in. The social media network, that celebrated its 15th anniversary in January, was embroiled in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and has been facing allegations of data breach and privacy violation.

Kylie Jenner became the youngest person in the world to hit six zero's in her net worth, which calls for a celebration in the KarJenner clan.

Kylie Cosmetics made about $360 million a year ago. Her most popular product is the lip kit that comes with a lipstick and matching lip liner.
