And that's a conservative estimate.
Speaking on Kylie's rise, Forbes wrote, "Another year of growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female, trumping Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23".
"Social media is an awesome platform", Jenner told Forbes. "It could easily be an instant game-changing acquisition for any company on the hunt for a winning brand with a younger customer", senior VP or merchandising at Ulta Tara Simon said.More news: US tariffs take effect, China retaliates
Her sister Kim Kardashian, who propelled the family to fame with her sex tape with Ray-J before the whole family went on to score a reality TV show, congratulated Kylie with fire emojis earlier today and sharing the front cover.

Kylie's make up brand kicked off when she introduced her $29 lip kits that included a lip liner and a lip colour.
It's hard to conceptualize Jenner's exponential wealth, but Forbes highlights its direct connection to her social media success. She welcomed her first child named Stormi in February with rapper Travis Scott under a shroud of secrecy.
"Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi, if she's into it". Jenner has over 110 million followers on Instagram. Using its standard formulation, Forbes values the company at $800 million, and Kylie is the sole owner.More news: Na eases to five-shot victory at The Greenbrier
