FYI, the tag was earlier owned by Facebook’s head honcho, Mark Zuckerberg. Yes, while most of us, when 22-year-old, were/are busy deciding our careers, hanging out with our friends… or just being a couch potato, Kylie Jenner turned out to be one massive exception. And, now, that Kylie Jenner manages to hit the headlines for slightest of the reason, we have got some of her interesting facts covered for you, read on…
Family and personal life
Kylie Jenner was born to parents Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner) and TV star Kris Jenner on August 10, 1997. She has an elder sibling named Kendall Jenner and four siblings from Kris’ first marriage – Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Rob Kardashian. On the personal front, Kylie Jenner has been dating rapper Travis Scott, with whom she also has a one-year-old daughter named Stormi.
With a net worth of $1 Billion - yes you read that right - Kylie Jenner is the second richest celebrity on Forbes’ 2019 list, after singer Taylor Swift. The entrepreneur’s major source of wealth is her successful model of Kylie Cosmetics, which was founded in the year 2015. She used $250,000 of her earnings made from modeling gigs by paying an outside company to produce her first 15,000 lip kits. However, Kylie’s brand saw rapid growth only after she collaborated with Ulta in 2018.
The collaboration ensured that her products made its way to over 1,000 stores across America. Talking about its staff, it is managed by only 12 employees (five out of whom are part-time) and most of her makeup products are outsourced. And the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s mom aka ‘momager’ Kris Jenner is behind all her PR and financial operations, in return for a 10% share. Well, last year alone, Kylie Jenner’s brand grew by an estimated whopping $360 million, as reported by Forbes. Upon being asked about her oh-so-growing success, Kylie said to Forbes, “It's the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”
