Kylie Jenner set to become the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire ever

Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to announce that she will be gracing the cover of Forbes Magazine, for their issue on female billionaires. 

Kylie's still hyaluronically amplified pout is further pronounced by a coating of one of her famous Kylie Lip Kits – the innovation which got her on the cover in the first place. 

Described as the youngest self-made billionaire in history, it's the cool $900 million she has made from her company Kylie Cosmetics that earned her the recognition of Forbes.

'Wow. i can’t believe I’m posting my very own @forbes cover. thank you for this article and the recognition,' she wrote under the post. 

'I’m so blessed to do what i love everyday. I couldn’t have dreamt this up!'

However, not everyone agrees with Kylie being described as 'self-made' 

While most recognise the huge achievements she has made with Kylie Cosmetics, many are pointing out that by hailing from the Kardashian-Jenner clan, it's difficult to associate her with being 'self-made.'

With the dictionary defining self-made as 'having become successful or rich by one's own efforts,' and it conjures up a came-from-nothing image of a person who started at the bottom and rose through the ranks through hard work and innovation. 

Having come from a collective family net worth of $400 million dollars without Kylie's fortune added, and with the astronomical fame, could Kylie be considered 'self-made?'
