Kylie Jenner has become the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, according to Forbes billionaires’ list. The youngest Kardashian family member is making her fortune from her best-selling cosmetics business. The 21-year-old founded and owns Kylie Cosmetics, the three-year-old beauty business that generated an estimated $360m in sales last year.
Forbes made this known as they released the annual list on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. At 21, she is both the youngest self-made billionaire and the youngest billionaire on Forbes’ ‘young billionaires’ list. She reached the milestone earlier than Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who became a billionaire aged 23.
“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,” Ms Jenner told Forbes.
