Kylie Jenner announced as the "Richest Self-Made Women" by Forbes' special issue!

by Vibhuti Gupta, Friday, July 13, 2018

Since the time she founded her cosmetic brand, Kylie Cosmetics in February 2016, Kylie 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.

Kylie Jenner is sitting on an empire.

"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,” she added.

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.

Jenner, who also makes money from endorsements, is the youngest woman to be featured. Others top earners include Oprah Winfrey (No. 6, $3.1 billion), Sheryl Sandberg (No. 12, $1.55 billion), Tory Burch (No. 29, $800 million), Vera Wang (No. 34, $630 million), Madonna (No. 36, $590 million), Donna Karan (No. 43, $470 million), Céline Dion (No. 46, $430 million), Judy Sheindlin (No. 48, $400 million), Barbra Streisand (No. 48, $400 million), Beyoncé (No. 53, $355 million), Kim Kardashian (No. 54, $350 million) and Taylor Swift (No. 60, $320 million).
