  • Two Indian Origin Persons On Forbes List Of US Richest Self Made Women

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11.

Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

CNN has not confirmed that total, and since her company is privately, 100% owned by Jenner, she's not required to report her finances publicly.

"The publication also tweeted the news using the hashtag "#SelfMadeWomen". "Kylie really fell in love with the natural look, and wanted more of that, so she made a decision to stop putting filler in her lips".

Discussion around whether Jenner, whose upbringing in ritzy Calabasas was documented on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", is truly "self-made" quickly exploded. While it is true her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth multimillions, netizens do not agree that the term "self-made" applies to Jenner. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone". The magazine estimates Jenner's net worth to be roughly $900 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States. "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", its post stated yesterday, July 11.

After all, she grew up in one of America's richest and most-followed celebrity families.

The online dictionary's Twitter account even went as far as to give the link for the online definition of the word "self-made". And sure, there's no disputing that the 20-year-old, who launched Kylie Cosmetics in 2016, is a highly successful businesswoman.
