American entrepreneur Kylie Jenner has retained her place at the youngest self-made billionaire in the world at just 22-years old. The young entrepreneur's position was made known in this year's list by Forbes.
The beauty mogul first made it to the billionaires' list in March 2019 when she replaced the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, who made his first billion when he was 23-year-old.
In November 2019, Kylie Jenner sold off 51 percent of her Kylie Cosmetics brand to beauty brand Coty Inc. for $600 million. The deal means that her business is now valued at around $1.2 billion and she still owns the other 49 percent stake.

While there have been controversies about being called a self-made billionaire, Forbes defended her position by saying that she built her business and didn't inherit it although, she got a lot of help from her famous family.
Kylie started her beauty business in 2015 by selling $29 lipstick kits. The kits sold out within minutes of launching it. Her products were first sold online before she started distributing to stores in the US.
