Kylie Jenner is one very successful boss lady. At just 20 years old, the baby of the Jenner family was named one of America’s richest self-made women gracing the cover of Forbes August issue. Kylie, who surpassed sister Kim as the most profitable member of the family, turned her lift kit idea into a 9 million dollar business in just two years And if she maintains the same pace is on track to surpass Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest self-made billionaire ever. Kylie credits her loyal fan base and the power of social media for her success. Forbes conservatively estimates the star Is worth $900 million as Kylie Cosmetics continues to rake in the revenue. The brand has sold more than $630 million of make up since its initial launch. Talk about a whole lot of lipstick. Big congrats to Kylie.

The 21-year-old beat out her famous sisters (yes, even Kim Kardashian) for a spot on Forbes’ s annual “Top 10 of America’s Wealthiest Celebrities in 2018” list that was released on Tuesday. With a net worth of $900 million, the reality star tied for fifth with Jay-Z, thanks to her beauty empire, Kylie Cosmetics, of which she owns 100 percent.

Topping the list this year was Star Wars creator George Lucas (at $5.4 billion) followed by Steven Spielberg (at $3.7 billion), Oprah Winfrey (at $2.8 billion), and Michael Jordan at ($1.7 billion).

Though impressive, Jenner’s inclusion on the list should come as no surprise to anyone. As Forbes mentioned, the beauty mogul is well on her way to becoming “the youngest self-made billionaire ever.”

Back in July, the Kylie Cosmetics founder graced the cover of Forbes’ “Richest Self-Made Women” issue after earning the 27th spot (her big sister Kim was #54) thanks to her almost-billionaire status. While the achievement was well-earned, many people on the internet took issue with the star being labeled as “self-made” given the leg up she received from the visibility of her famous family.

She continued saying, “We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom.”

Work hard, play hard, right?
