Kylie Jenner might surpass Facebook creator as the youngest self-made billionaire ever
Kylie Jenner, who is probably the most famous member of the Kardashian clan nowadays, might just steal Mark Zuckerberg's spot when it comes to being the youngest billionaire in history.
On Thursday, July 12, 2018, Jenner took to her Instagram page to share the cover of Forbes magazine in which she appears with her millions of fans and followers.
On the cover, the young Kardashian is described as one of America's 60 richest self-made women and, considering her successful business, one of the most influential as well.
At the age of 20, Jenner managed to build an empire worth $900 million, all thanks to Kylie Cosmetics, the company that the socialite founded three years ago.

Jenner's business was so successful that she was able to surpass her older sister, Kim Kardashian West, who also possesses several businesses of her own, along with her husband, rapper Kanye West.
Kim's business pales in comparison to her sister's considering that it is only worth $350 million. In those three years, Jenner amassed more than $630 million in sales, which contributed to her place in Forbes' ranking.
But her wealth wasn't solely built by her company; she also received several million from her TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as well as endorsement deals and after-tax dividends.
Thanks to this, Jenner is on her way to claim Zuckerberg's spot as the youngest self-made billionaire ever. The creator of Facebook, who has an estimated net worth of around $70 billion, went from millionaire to billionaire at the age of 23.
Jenner, who will turn 21 years old on August 21, started her company with a simple $29 Lip Kit and, during an interview with Vogue, she couldn't be more thankful for seeing her hard work finally recognized.
Zuckerberg started Facebook in 2004 at Harvard. At the time, he was only 19 and created the social network to help students match names with faces in class, not realizing that it would eventually grow into a worldwide phenomenon in 2012.
