YAS! @KylieJenner Covers Forbes’ “Richest Self-Made Women” Issue

Kylie Jenner’s undeniable boss moves have landed her an entire Forbes Magazine feature and we’re here for it!

Since founding Kylie Cosmetics in February 2016, her company—of which she owns 100 percent—has earned more than $630 million in revenue. At 20, she has managed to leverage her social media following (110 million followers on Instagram) to build a $900 million fortune. Now, she is gracing the cover of Forbes‘ “Richest Self-Made Women” issue, landing at No. 27. Amazingly, it’s the first time she’s been included in the list since it was first published in 2014.

“The most successful women entrepreneurs in the country are increasingly taking advantage of technology, including social media, to help them launch and grow businesses,” editor Luisa Kroll says. “That’s one reason why we’ve seen a notable influx of Instagram-savvy moguls like 20-year-old Kylie Jenner in the ranks of America’s richest self-made women.” Today, Jenner’s company is worth $800 million. “Social media is an amazing platform,” the E! star, who boasts 25.6 million Twitter followers, explains. “I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.”

Before launching her makeup line, which has moved beyond lip kits since its initial launch, “I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own,” Jenner says. But she’s always been drawn to the allure of cosmetics. “Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eyeshadow,” the makeup mogul tells Forbes. “I turned to makeup to help me feel more confident.”

Jenner envisions she will be working on Kylie Cosmetics “forever.” But, she would “maybe” consider one-day handing over the business to her daughter, Stormi Webster—”if she’s into it.”

Congrats Ky!
