At 21 years of age, Kylie Jenner has become the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. In just 3 years Jenner turned her cosmetics company into a $900 million empire. That alone makes her net worth more than double her even more famous and seasoned sister, Kim Kardashian.

These new stats bump Kylie up to the top of the Forbe’s list for the youngest self-made billionaire in history, knocking Mark Zuckerburg from his former top spot. The Facebook tycoon became a billionaire at 23 years of age.

Some billionaires climb the rankings by inflating their assets with real estate and power broker moves. This story is far more organic, as Kylie Jenner has leveraged her mega following on social media by launching Kylie Cosmetics in 2015 and selling $330 million worth of product in 2017.
