It’s no secret that Kylie Jenner has made a ton of money with her businesses. Starting with insecurities about her own lips, she turned it into an empire at a very young age. As her momager would say: “You’re doing amazing, sweetie.”

The youngest of the family used her $250,000 earnings to form her own empire. The money came from her modeling career and appearances on the iconic reality show with her family, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It helped to build her first business in 2015. Kylie was only 17-year-old when she started Kylie Cosmetics.

During its first launch, Kylie Cosmetics completely sold out in under a minute. Seven years later, it’s now an empire and the core of its subsidiaries and very successful brands: Kylie Skin and Kylie Baby.

By the age of 20, she already had earned $900 million from her business. The following year, she earned the title of the youngest self-made billionaire.

In 2020, BBC revealed Forbes had taken off the entrepreneur off the list. The Kardashian family had been accused of going to “unusual lengths to present its youngest member as richer than she was.” Naturally, Kylie clapped back at the comments. The beauty mogul said to “never ask for any title” to prove her success.

Forbes lists Kylie Kenner’s net worth currently in 2022 as $600 million. As of today, Kylie now reportedly earns $100 million annually.
