Kylie Jenner lands the cover of Forbes magazine billionaires list aged 20

Kylie Jenner is on the cover of Forbes magazine as she is set to become the youngest self-made billionaire thanks to her cosmetic empire.

The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is estimated to be worth $900 million dollars at only 20-years old.

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

Zuckerberg was 23 when he achieved the milestone.

The mother-of-one has made her fortune due to her highly successful cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, which sold out of her first products - the Kylie Lip Kit - in seconds.

Since then, Kylie has expanded the line to include a whole range of make-up products including concealer, highlighters and eye shadow.

Explaining in an interview with Forbes magazine Jenner reveals the reason for her success.

"Social media is an amazing platform. I have such easy access to my fans and my customers."

It seems the sky’s the limit for the young reality TV star, who turns 21 this August, but we certainly can’t wait to keep up with the cosmetics Kween.
