She told Forbes that social is "an wonderful platform" because she has "such easy access to my fans and my customers". Jenner was the youngest woman included in the list and one of only three younger than 35 years old.
In addition to bringing in millions from her families' reality shows and many more millions from product endorsement deals, Forbes estimates her booming makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth almost $800 million. Mama Kris Jenner stepped in from there, securing their own e-commerce platform to relaunch Kylie Lip Kits as Kylie Cosmetics on Shopify, where it just exploded. Kylie's step-sister Kim Kardashian is number 57 on the list at 36 years old.
"Another year of growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female, trumping Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23", Robehmed reported.
"I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own", Kylie said. But as she started making money as a model, adding endorsement deals with British retailer Topshop and others, it all began to add up and her appearance began to be a business.

During its primary mission, Kepler stared at about 150,000 stars simultaneously, hunting for promising transits. It is now making observations toward the constellation Cancer which it previously studied in 2015.
However, upon realising that she has a huge following on social media, Kylie says that helped her get easier access to her supporters, and maybe that's why her business is doing so well.
"Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eye shadow", Kylie recalled.
"It has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330m in 2017". While she became an Instagram sensation for over-lining her lips, opportunity really struck when she admitted to getting lip fillers in 2015. "I don't want to do it with anyone else, '" Jenner told Forbes, saying she used almost a quarter million dollars of her own money from modeling to make the first 15,000 lip kits. (In 2015, she admitted to getting temporary ones.) So, the reality star made a decision to capitalize on everyone's obsession.
"I said, 'I'm ready to put up my own money. I don't want to do it with anyone else, '" Jenner said. However, mother Kris maintains that revenue is up "considerably" in the first six months of 2018 compared to a year ago, but it's an assertion that Forbes couldn't verify. Kris, however, said selling out is "always something that we're willing to explore".
