At the age of 21, the reality TV star-turned makeup mogul Kylie Jenner, officially became the youngest self-made billionaire ever. While, it is impossible to ignore the debate as to whether Jenner is ‘self-made,’ considering her family’s status. According to Forbes definition she is a self made and has not inherited the wealth of family. She owns all of it. No outside investors.

At the age of 15, she and her sister Kendall launched their clothing line, Kendall & Kylie for PacSun. Later, Jenner started her lip kit company Kylie Cosmetics in 2015 and has grown her company into a $900 million powerhouse of makeup by selling lip kits online. Jenner sold 51% of her Kylie Cosmetics company to Coty in a deal valued for $600 million early this year.  She credits the power of “social media” for her success.
