What is Kylie Jenner’s net worth and how did the Kylie Cosmetics founder become a billionaire?

THE Kardashian-Jenner Clan’s cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner never ceases to make headlines….and money, lots of it.

Following her secret pregnancy and the arrival of baby Stormi, Kylie was then betrayed by her best friend Jordyn Woods who reportedly got with her sister Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend. But things seem to be looking up for the 22-year-old star who is now the youngest ever self-made billionaire according to Forbes. Here’s the full lowdown…

What is Kylie Jenner net worth?

Kylie has barely left the spotlight since appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians at the tender age of 10-years-old.

She’s made a fortune monetising on her fame, all while keeping fans enthralled in her love life and surgery scandals.

The 22-year-old, who was born August 10, 1997, has now been revealed as the RICHEST of the Kardashian empire.

In 2019 Forbes  claimed Kylie is the youngest self-made billionaire ever, and estimated her net worth as $1 billion (around £828 million).

She also listed at No23 on Forbes’ America’s Richest Self-Made Women list.

Here is how she has made her fortune:

Kylie Cosmetics

The infamous Kylie lip kits have become renowned for selling out in a matter of SECONDS.

If this wasn’t proof enough that they’re in high demand, some of the liquid lipsticks have appeared on eBay for hundreds of pounds – and up to ten times the asking price.

Forbes says the Kylie Cosmetics has sold more than $630million (£490million) worth of make-up since its founding in February 2016.

Kylie owns 100 percent of the company.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians

There’s no doubt that much of Kylie’s wealth has been built on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians franchise.

In 2015, the Kardashian-Jenners landed a £70million deal with E! which gave the network rights to distribute the reality show for four more years.

It was estimated that Kylie earns around £4,000 for each episode.

Sponsored posts

At first glance, Kylie’s glossy Instagram page looks like snapshots from her everyday life.

But looking a little closer reveals that many of the posts are actually marketing ploys.

Kylie is regularly paid to promote different products, in images which she captions #ad.

The social media star also offers her fans “discount codes” for different items, and will sometimes get a cut if they make a purchase.

Brand deals

Collaborations with different brands have proven a great source of income for Kylie.

In 2013, the high-earning model raked in around £160,000 for her two nail polishes in the Nicole by OPI cosmetics line.

The Jenner sister has represented Nip + Fab as an ambassador and launched her own clothing line with British fashion giant Topshop.


It’s hard to avoid spotting the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star splashed across countless magazines.

Even though her sister Kendall is known as a Victoria’s Secret model, Kylie has forged her own name for herself in the fashion industry.

Her appearances in Vogue and the New York Fashion Week catwalk have helped the A-lister build up her profits in the bank.


The social media sensation has harnessed her huge audience by launching two popular apps.

Her work towards the popular Kylie Jenner app and the Kendall & Kylie game has undoubtedly been lucrative.

Staggeringly, Apptopia believes that her solo release saw 1.75 million downloads the first week it was live.

However, Kylie no longer has the most liked Instagram image ever, thanks to a photo of an egg which attracted 39 million likes.

Property empire

Kylie’s fortune has been cemented by her impressive property empire.

In 2015, she reportedly cashed in £2.7million from her “starter home”, before moving into a luxury Tuscan-style Calabasas mansion.

Then, the five-bedroom pad – complete with six-and-a-half bathrooms – was listed for nearly £1million more than the youngest member of the Kardashian clan originally paid.

In October 2016, Trulia reported that the reality TV mogul had put down money for her FOURTH property, scooping a £9million Hidden Hills home in California.

And in 2018, Kylie and Travis purchased a £10.6million mansion in Beverly Hills, California.

This picture sparked rumours that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are engaged

Is Kylie Jenner engaged to Travis Scott?

In 2017 Kylie was spotted at music festival Coachella with her friends, where Travis was on the line-up.

By the time the festival was over, she was seen cuddling and kissing Travis – this appeared to mark the start of their relationship.

Rumours started circulating that the pair were engaged in February 2018 when Kylie posted a video which appeared to show her wearing a wedding ring.

Then in October sources close to the star claimed that she calls Travis “hubby” as she wants him to propose.

In December 2018 Kylie posted a pic of her with Travis to her Instagram story with a diamond ring emoji and no other explanation.

Kylie Jenner revealed she’s named her baby daughter Stormi

When did Kylie Jenner give birth?

Kylie Jenner gave birth on February 1, 2018, after trying her best to keep it secret.

The Kardashians star opened up on Twitter about her pregnancy and her reason for keeping it away from the limelight.

On her pregnancy, Kylie said that it was “the most beautiful, empowering and life-changing experience” of her life.

She revealed that her “beautiful” baby girl was born on February 1.

Kylie posted the name of her baby on Instagram.

The reality star shared a picture of her holding the baby’s hand with the caption: “Stormi”.

She also released her baby’s birth certificate, revealing the child has not been given a middle name and has been registered as Stormi Webster.

Kylie’s middle name is Kristen, after her mother Kris Jenner, but it would appear the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star didn’t want to follow the same tradition in giving her daughter a middle moniker based on hers.

Stormi’s birth certificate also lists her time of birth as 4.43pm.

And it shows Jacques Berman Webster II as the father – who is, of course, Travis Scott.

Who did Kylie Jenner date before Travis Scott?

Kylie had an on-off relationship with American rapper Tyga for two years.

The couple first met back when he performed at Kylie’s sister Kendall Jenner’s Sweet 16 birthday party in 2011 but didn’t start dating until 2014.

After several break-ups, the couple finally called time on their romance in April 2017.

Kylie has transformed her look over the years

Has Kylie Jenner had a boob job?

Kylie has continued to deny getting breast augmentation surgery, even though her impressive boobs have continued to be a hot topic of discussion.

At the beginning of the year, the reality star sparked rumours by showing off her full bust in a plunging silver catsuit.

Her controversial outfit followed speculation that she’d gone under the knife when she went braless in a revealing jumpsuit during a family holiday.

The popular TV personality has also been forced to deny whether or not she’s had jaw or cheek surgery.

Although Kylie is yet to admit to getting her boobs enhanced cosmetically, she has owned up to getting her lips done.

And her transformation from geeky kid to pouting megastar is remarkable.

What does Kylie Jenner’s real hair look like?

In May 2017, Kylie revealed to her Snapchat followers what her real hair looks like – and it is nothing like what we’re used to from the fashionista.

She ditched her weaves and wigs for the day and revealed she actually has a short brown bob, which she tied up into a bun on the top of her head.

Running her fingers through the loose locks too short to get into her hairband, the star joked: “My hair is just crazy.”

The social media socialite later gave a tour of her plush pad including a “glam room” which was being decorated and filled with beauty products.
