Kylie Jenner, 21, is making headlines and history – she is officially the youngest self-made billionaire, according to Forbes. A feat like this is impressive, considering the next youngest person on that list is Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, who is 34 years old. Kylie also broke Zuckerberg’s record as he became a billionaire at age 23.

Kylie received this title after the success of her makeup company “Kylie Cosmetics,” which racked up about $900 million in revenue over the past three years of its existence. Furthermore, Kylie Cosmetics partnered with the Ulta Beauty company to sell more of her makeup products. The Ulta Beauty company was valued at $1.56 billion in November 2018, according to the NASDAQ stock exchange market.

However, not everyone is exactly ready to congratulate her on the achievement. More and more people seem to be criticizing the “self-made” portion of the title because they believe that Kylie has had many advantages and privileges that the general public don’t have. For example, Kylie’s half sisters are the famous Kardashians sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. Because of this, Kylie has made numerous appearances on the highly popular reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” since 2007. Not to mention, her mother Caitlyn Jenner was a former Olympic Gold-Medalist. Kylie also has a major social media presence.

According to a January 2019 report by Statista, Kylie Jenner is one of the most followed accounts on Instagram, and at the time of the report she had around 125 million followers. That number has now jumped to 129 million and counting. She also has 27 million followers on Twitter as well as 4 million subscribers on YouTube. And, many have pointed out that her relationship with Travis Scott has also boosted her success. Scott’s last album sold about half a million units according to the Billboard 200 music chart.

Nonetheless, it should also be noted that it’s been a very productive year for Jenner financially, and although she has had these privileges, it is intriguing to see someone so young reach the 10-figure mark.
