On 11th July, 2018 Kylie Jenner has been announced the "Richest Self-Made Women" by Forbes and from then on all hell broke loose.
Kylie Jenner most known for her much popular family and their family show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ has graced the cover of Forbes' "Richest Self-Made Women" issue. She does a lot of things like she is a television personality, model and entrepreneur but these are not just the things which made her ‘self-made’.
Kylie is popular only because she has a very popular, infact the most popular family in the world where she earned her fame from and then used it in her business. Noone is questioning the fact that she is hard-working but she is highly privileged also. Therefore, giving her the tag of ‘Self-Made Women’ is not going well in the social media.
Ever since Jenner founded Kylie Cosmetics in February 2016, her company has earned revenue of $630 million. The 20-year-old has managed to build a $900 million fortune, reports eonline.com
This is the first time Jenner has been included in the Forbes' list since it was first published in 2014.
"The most successful women entrepreneurs are increasingly taking advantage of technology, including social media, to help them launch and grow businesses," said Luisa Kroll, assistant managing editor of Forbes.
In an interview with Forbes, Jenner said that she has always been allured by cosmetics, even though she struggled to find something to do on her own.
"Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eyeshadow. I turned to make-up to help me feel more confident," she said.
Jenner also makes money from endorsements and is the youngest woman to be featured in the issue. She is also said to be the seventh most followed celebrity on Instagram.
