Kylie Jenner has made history as the youngest person ever to make Forbes' list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women.

The 20-year-old took came in at number 27; she's worth an estimated net of $900 million (£679 million) thanks to her company Kylie Cosmetics which she owns. Jenner launched her make-up brand just two years ago and since then she has sold more than $630 million (£475 million) worth of cosmetics. This means she is worth more than sister Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé, who are valued at $350 million (£263 million) and $355 million (£268 million) respectively.

According to a recent interview in Forbes, if Jenner has another year of growth, she will be the youngest self-made billionaire in history, taking the title from Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at 23.

Jenner, who is featured on the magazine's cover, said: “It’s incredible to be recognised for something I’m so passionate about, and I’m really grateful for that. I’ve always loved makeup and worked really hard to bring the first lip kit to market."

"Connecting with my fans and creating product that excites them has been an incredible process. I’ve learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams.”
