With over 100 million followers on Instagram, Kylie has also featured on TIME magazine's most influential teens list numerous times and is one of the top 10 most followed people on Instagram.

Kylie Jenner took to Snapchat on Wednesday night to show off 5-month-old daughter Stormi's newly pierced ears. She is estimated to be US$900 million (AU$1.2 billion) worth.

The Lip Kit mogul launched her cosmetics company in 2016 with $29 sets containing matching lipstick and lip liner, and has since sold more than $630 million worth of makeup.

"Starting a company on my own, and it being so big from the beginning, there isn't a lot of room for mistakes..."

Since then, the company has sold $630m (R8,4 bliion) of makeup, helped in a large part by Jenner's own social media presence. "BILLION DOLLAR BABY" followed by a million fire, wave and money face emojis. The youngest of the KarJenners, she said she felt out of place trying to carve her own niche away from the show.

Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of what Forbes calls the "Kardashian-Jenner industrial complex", is on track to pass Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest self-made billionaire thanks to her 2-year-old Kylie Cosmetics enterprise. In 2012, collaboratively with her sister Kendell, she has created a line of clothing Kendall & Kylie.

Forbes said the firm has only seven full-time and five part-time employees, with manufacturing, packaging and sales outsourced.

While her fans have showered her with nothing but kind words since the magazine's debut, according to a recent report by Hollywood Life, Jenner is apparently "being bullied" by critics who don't believe she deserved the honor in the first place.

Even the freaking dictionary roasted Jenner.
