Kylie Jenner Is Officially The World's Youngest Self-Made Billionaire
Get ready to feel bad for yourself because 21-year-old Kylie Jenner is now officially named the world's youngest self-made billionaire.

Last year, it was reported that the celebrity sister of another celebrity was only USD100bil (RM409bil) away from claiming the billionaire title.

Now, Forbes has stamped her as the youngest ever self-made billionaire with an estimated net worth of USD1bil (RM4.09bil).

Kylie, you're making us look bad.
She has reportedly hit the ten-figure mark in her bank accounts at a younger age than when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg did. He was 23 years old at the time.

Contrary to popular belief, her wealth did not come from her position as one of the Kardashians. Hence the "self-made" claim.

She made her millions from her successful cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, founded a little over three years ago.

As the sole owner of the beauty company popular known for their lip kits, needless to say, she takes homes everything.

According to Hypebeast, the team at Kylie Cosmetics only has 12 employees -- seven working full-time and five part-time. Her mother Kris Jenner in turn handles all the finance and PR work.

thank you @forbes 💜

"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," Jenner told Forbes.

She also attributed her success to "the power of social media" because she already had "a strong reach before I was able to start anything".

Just ask her 128.5 million (and counting) followers on Instagram!

You know it.
Out of all the rich people in the world, Forbes ranked Jenner 2,057th place on the 'Forbes 2019' list. Can you imagine stepping into that room?
