Kylie Jenner on track to be youngest self-made billionaire by age 21

Jenner became a star thanks to her family's reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but it was when she branched out into beauty, creating the Lip Kits under her Kylie Cosmetics banner, that she really made big bucks. The magazine values her company at worth almost $800 million - and Jenner owns 100 percent of it.

Forbes values Kylie Cosmetics - which launched with only lip kits less than three years ago - at almost $800 million.

Soon, when she's worth a billion dollars, Jenner will be the youngest "self-made" billionaire bar none, beating out even Mark Zuckerberg, who earned the title at 23.

While we can't knock Kylie for her generous start in life-and let's not get it twisted, we commend her hard work, for sure-it does feel like a bit of a stretch to use the word "self-made". Jenner owns 100% of it.

Jenner and West have both built their empires by harnessing social media - Jenner has 110 million followers on Instagram. Jenner was featured in Forbes' annual list of the 60 Most Successful Women Entrepreneurs in America on Wednesday for her massive fortune worth $900 million. She told Forbes that social is "an fantastic platform" because she has "such easy access to my fans and my customers".

Kylie's older sister Kim Kardashian West posted about the Forbes cover twice on Twitter.

Crushing the business game, queening over social media and crippling other brands with her boredom ...

"Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi", she told the magazine.

Her surgically enhanced style has spawned a trend, plastic surgeons say, with more women requesting fuller lips.

Oddly enough, she has since chose to forego her regular lip injections and she's starting to look more like her old-self just as her business is about to burst into the billions bracket.

Kylie Jenner may be the youngest sibling of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but she is also the family member bringing in the most cash.
