How 20-year-old Kylie Jenner leveraged her massive social media following to build a $900M cosmetics fortune in less than 3 years

Kylie Jenner is now the richest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan after leveraging on her massive social media following to build a $900M cosmetics fortune in less than 3 years.

On Wednesday, Forbes magazine unveiled the cover of their August issue, showing the 20-year-old reality-star-turned-beauty-mogul on the cover for an issue focused on 'America's Women Billionaires'.




According to the magazine, Kylie - who is set to turn 21 on August 10 - is currently worth an estimated $900million thanks to her cosmetics line.


Once she crosses the $1billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

Forbes said they estimate that Kylie Cosmetics has raked in $630million since it launched in 2015.

'Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

'Add to that the millions she's earned from TV programs and endorsing products like Puma shoes and PacSun clothing, and $60 million in estimated after-tax dividends she's taken from her company, and she's conservatively worth $900 million, which along with her age makes her the youngest person on the fourth annual ranking of America's Richest Self-Made Women,' the article reads.

According to the article, Kylie employs just seven full-time and five part-time employees at her company, outsourcing production and sales.



As with all of her kids, Kris Jenner handles her daughter's finance's and public relations for a 10 per cent fee. Last year, that meant Kylie paid her mom $17million.
