Kylie Jenner, the founder of Kylie Cosmetics, has become the world's youngest self-made billionaire after her company signed an exclusive partnership with Ulta Beauty.

She rose to fame in her family's reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, in which she appeared from the age of 10, but in recent years has become a force in the beauty industry with her Kylie Cosmetics company.

Besides being named one of America's richest self-made women as she graced the cover of Forbes' ranking of the most successful female businesswomen, Jenner was also ranked as one of the top five wealthiest celebrities for 2018 by Forbes.

She is also declared as the "youngest self-made billionaire ever".

"I didn't expect anything".

"We consider any person who built her own fortune, and didn't inherit the money, to be self-made", she wrote. First, it was the explosive cheating scandal that involved Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods followed by Kylie Jenner accusing Travis Scott on cheating on her.


Kylie Jenner, who is now considered to be a global icon, has added just another achievement to her kitty.

"I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything".

Kylie Cosmetics past year signed a deal with Ulta Beauty Inc to put her products in all of the retailer's 1,163 US stores. "I did not foresee the future", Jenner said.

"It's been hard for her to realize that, but she knows it's for the best", the source says. "She probably realized: 'If I want to get big, I've got to scale, and to do that, I need a partner.' Ultimately, she wants to grow her brand, and she needs this store presence to do that".

'I see Kylie Cosmetics going very far.
