The 20-year-old with her seemingly unstoppable makeup empire, Kylie Cosmetics, is one of seven newcomers on the list, which includes the likes of her sister Kim Kardashian.

According to the outlet, Jenner has amassed $900 million dollars since launching the brand less than three years ago, which makes her the youngest person on the fourth annual ranking of America’s Richest Self-Made Women.

And that’s a conservative estimate. Within the next year, she’s set to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, besting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Snapchat king Evan Spiegel. 

“Social media is an amazing platform,” Jenner told the outlet about her brand strategy. “I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.” 

The reality TV star, of course, boasts one of the most robust social media followings around with over 110 million followers on Instagram and millions more on Snapchat and Twitter.
