If you had one billion dollars in your bank account, which car would you buy, where would you go for vacations and which expensive mansions would you have? Well, one of those celebrities who has the money to go anywhere and buy whatever she wants is Kylie Jenner. The youngest of both the Kardashian and Jenner sisters, Kylie is living the kind of life that most of us can only see in our dreams. While the Keeping Up with the Kardashian show made her famous, she capitalized on that fame and used it to sell cosmetics which sell out in minutes. With that kind of influence in business, what do you think is Kylie Jenner net worth?
Although Kylie Jenner age is only 21, she has already bagged the crown of the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. She was recently given the title in 2019, preceding Mark Zuckerberg at the age of 23. Most of us know her from her appearance in their family’s reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians where she featured alongside her siblings. However, the young girl that we adored on that show has grown up and has a beautiful baby girl together with musician Travis Scott. However, she is not just a mother or a reality television star, thanks to the booming makeup industry, Kylie has created a successful makeup line worth millions. As a result, she can easily be considered a famous entrepreneur. This makes us wonder, how did she end up becoming the youngest billionaire in the world?
Kylie Jenner net worth 2019
Inspired by one of Kylie Jenner’s siblings, Kim Kardashian West, whom Kylie refers to as a business-minded woman, Kylie Jenner has always been open to trying out new business ideas. Such endeavours have resulted in the social media influencer amassing net worth of $1 billion. With such a huge figure, one may wonder how did that cute 10-year-old reality television star then built such a fortune in a few years and is now a billionaire?
Well, she is the owner and founder of Kylie Cosmetics (formerly known as Kylie Lip Kits), which was launched in 2015. The cosmetic line has various products, which include eyeshadow palettes, concealers, highlighters, blushes, and many more. Thanks to the availability of various items, the line has become one of the most popular cosmetic brands in the world.
She started building her sunniness empire at the age of 14 when she joined forces with her sister Kendall and collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun. The sisters came up with their own clothing line named Kendall and Kylie. While in their late teens, the Jenner sisters teamed up with various fashion labels like PacSun, TopShop, and Steve Madden to launch several products such as shoes, clothes, and handbags. Kylie also ventured into a solo career where she partnered with Bellami Hair and started a hair extension line called Kylie Hair Kouture.
Later on, in 2015, she launched her own cosmetics line Kylie lip Kits, which was later on renamed to Kylie Cosmetics a year after it was founded.
The makeup mogul earns mostly from her cosmetics line especially her lip kits which go for $29 each. The lip kits which consist of Kylie Jenner lipstick and lip liner are said to have been sold out in minutes. Ever since she started her cosmetic company, she has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup.
On top of that, she continues to expand her product line, which now includes eye shadow and concealer. Her latest beauty venture is Kylie Skin, which consists of six products: foaming face wash, eye cream, face cream, Vitamin C serum, vanilla milk toner, and walnut face scrub. According to a post on her Instagram page, the products are suitable for all skin types and are gluten, sulfate, vegan, and paraben free.
While most of what she makes comes from her cosmetics line, Kylie also earns from her appearances in the hit reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Her clothing line which was started with her older sister Kendall also chips into what she makes.
Would it be okay to call her Jack of all trades? She is not only a businesswoman but also a producer of the hit television series Life of Kylie, which is a show that mostly centres on her life. The show which aired in 2017 uses the same concept as that of the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Appearances in these shows, plus endorsements where she earns millions, is what helps the youngest daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner get such massive wealth and be one of the best at what she does.
