Welcome to the age of Kylie Jenner.
The youngest member of the Kardashian clan has proven to be the most successful, courtesy of a new title she possesses.
Forbes has named the 21 year old the youngest self-made billionaire. Ever.
Kylie owes the title to her cosmetics company, which she founded 3 years ago. Originally established to sell lip products, the entity grew from Kylie Lip Kits into full-blown Kylie Cosmetics, featuring eye and skin products.
In 2018, Forbes valued the company at over $900 million. The figure — combined with cash from the business — has helped Kylie soar past the one billion mark.
The milestone was predicted by Forbes last year when it placed her 27th on its annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women and predicted she would become the world’s youngest self-made billionaire.
The title was previously held by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who crossed the mark at age 23.
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back,” Kylie said.
Well done, Miss Jenner.
