Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million and on pace to become youngest self-made billionaire ever
That’s a lot of money to keep up with.
Kylie Jenner — who, at 20 years old, is the youngest of Kris Jenner’s six famous children — already has a net worth of $900 million and is on pace to become the youngest self-made billionaire by next year, according to Forbes.

The bulk of Jenner’s massive fortune comes from her wildly popular makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, which is reportedly valued at $800 million. Jenner is the lone owner of the brand, which operates out of her mother’s southern California home and only has seven full-time employees.
Jenner’s net worth is perhaps made even more impressive when considering her superstar sister, Kim Kardashian, is worth $350 million, according to Forbes.
Should she become a self-made billionaire at 21 as Forbes predicts, Jenner would surpass Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg as the fastest to reach that plateau. Zuckerberg was 23.
“Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eye shadow,” Jenner told Forbes for its new cover story. “I turned to makeup to help me feel more confident.”
Kylie Cosmetics — which launched in 2016 — sells a variety of different makeup and beauty products, including its widely desired lip kits. The company reportedly took home $330 million last year alone.
Jenner also generates steady additional incomes from her reality shows such as “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” in addition to sponsorship deals.
