The Forbes Instagram account posted a photo of Kylie's cover shot with the caption "Kylie Jenner is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, ahead of even Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23".

The beauty guru debuted her Kylie Cosmetics line two years ago, and it has since sold more than $630 million worth of makeup, the outlet reports.

Following the release of Kylie's feature, proud sister Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter to congratulate her on making the cover. "I'm so blessed to do what I love everyday", she tweeted next to a photograph of the cover story.

Eyeing the future, Jenner said she hopes to work on Kylie Cosmetics "forever", and that the brand stay in the family.

Kylie Cosmetics has already generated an estimated $230 million in net profit and Forbes predicts that sometime later this year, Jenner will likely become the youngest self-made billionaire in the world - a title that Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg once held.

"Thank you @Forbes for this article and the recognition".

And while it's unsure what material the ear accessory was, Kylie could definitely afford to splash out on some gold or diamonds after it was revealed earlier in the day that she's "set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire".

After rescuing the four boys, the officials paused the operation for at least 10 hours to fill the oxygen tanks that were used. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said. "And we have more expertise than yesterday", he said.

It's hard to conceptualize Jenner's exponential wealth, but Forbes highlights its direct connection to her social media success.

Jenner's net worth now far exceeds that of anyone else in her family, according to Forbes' calculations.

Jenner's empire is tightly controlled and small, with only seven full-time and five part-time employees.

The bulk of her income is derived from Kylie Cosmetics, best known for its lip kits. Her mother had the foresight to grow it into a full makeup line and ongoing business.

"I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own", Jenner told Forbes.

Kylie used $250,000 of her modeling earnings to manufacture the first 15,000 lip kits. She takes to Instagram and Snapchat almost hourly posting pouting selfies about which shade of Kylie Cosmetics she's wearing, posts videos of upcoming products, and announces new launches.
