Kylie Jenner set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire

"I don't want to do it with anyone else", Kylie told Forbes.

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. Kylie - who owns 100% of the company, now worth almost $800 billion - credits social media for helping her build such a massive following of customers.

Since then, the company has sold $630m of makeup, helped in a large part by Jenner's own social media presence.

The cosmetics queen has 110 million followers in Instagram.

"It's incredible to be recognised for something I'm so passionate about, and I'm really grateful for that", Jenner, who appears on the Forbes cover, said in the accompanying feature.

"Social media is an fantastic platform; I have such easy access to my fans and my customers".

By comparison her half-sister, Kim Kardashian West, 37, has to scrape by on a measly net worth of $350m. Forbes says she's "conservatively worth $900 million", and another year of growth will put her on track as not just the youngest female self-made billionaire ever, but the youngest self-made billionaire ever, period, beating out tMark Zuckerberg, who reached the billion-dollar mark at 23. She is the daughter of Kris Jenner - who was previously married to the prominent lawyer Robert Kardashian - and famed Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, and her ritzy Calabasas upbringing was documented on the reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians".

Love her or hate her, Kylie Jenner is one smart businesswoman, having turned a passion for beauty products into a multi-million dollar brand, Kylie Cosmetics.

The 20-year-old with her seemingly unstoppable makeup empire, Kylie Cosmetics, is one of seven newcomers on the list, which includes the likes of her sister Kim Kardashian.

But while such huge success at such a young age would usually be lauded, the reaction to Jenner's cover has largely been anything but, with people calling the reality TV star and Forbes out on the "self-made" description.

The app offers "an exclusive mix of free and premium paid content from Kylie's world, bringing you closer to her than ever before", according to its description.
