  • Kylie Jenner set to become the youngest self-made billionaire on Forbes list

Forbes projects that after another year of growth, Kylie's net worth is expected to grow above 1 billion, which would make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, replacing Mark Zuckerberg who now holds this title. The company, which was launched in 2014, has since enjoyed vast success, selling more than US$630 million (AU$856 million) worth of makeup, including an estimated US$330 million (AU$450 million) in 2017.

Forbes said it valued the 20-year-old's company at almost $US800 million and that Jenner owns 100% of it.

All together, Jenner's earnings put her fourth in Forbes' annual ranking of America's richest self-made women.

The Kardashian-Jenner family was unfazed by the apparent "shade" thrown at Kylie by Dictionary.com as on Wednesday several family members posted their congratulations on social media.

Forbes estimated that Kim Kardashian, who has her own cosmetics, clothing and mobile games lines, is worth $US350 million.

The math may add up, but the term "self made" is a stretch to say the least considering she has spent most of her life starring in one of the most successful reality shows ever.

'OMG STORMI HAS HER EARS PIERCED HOW MUCH FUCKING CUTER CAN SHE GET SHES ABSOLUTELY PERFECT @KylieJenner, ' a fan said. Jenner is the sole owner, reaping all the profits.

Noida now has the largest mobile factory in the world
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi said in April it will set up three more factories in India. India has around 40 crore smartphone users and almost 32 crore people use broadband.

To highlight her accomplishment, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star was tapped to grace the cover of the August issue of Forbes Magazine, which is hailing her as the "Cosmetics Queen".

With her 21st birthday approaching and a new baby at home, Jenner is already looking out toward the future. "I turned to makeup to help me feel more confident".

'You know I can't control what other people say and obviously that was a hard thing to go through, ' says Kris, who skirted the question but refused to deny the claim.

As her appearance began to change, the world became fixated with whether or not teenage Jenner got lip fillers.

Kylie debuted Kylie Lip Kits in 2015 before relaunching in 2016 as Kylie Cosmetics.

Now, Kylie is looking to instill that same confidence in her own daughter, Stormi, who she gave birth to in February, her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott.

"Ohh my goddd kylie you look so attractive the way you originally are now don't change you are sooo gorgeous with the natural you yassss slay", gushed another.
