Love them or hate, there's no stopping the Kardashian-Jenner family's success. 

Forbes magazine has named Kylie Jenner the world's youngest "self-made" billionaire at the age of 21.

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, previously held the title. 

Kylie has her beauty company, Kylie Cosmetics, to thank for the majority of her wealth.

The company made $360-million in 2018, earning the reality star billionaire status. Kylie Cosmetics is believed to be worth a whopping $900-million.

Not bad for a company that was started in 2015.

Kylie told Forbes she did not expect the brand to grow this big. 

"I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back," she told the publication.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star also makes millions of dollars from endorsement deals and her appearances on the family's reality show.

While Kylie is no doubt pleased about her new milestone, some have questioned whether she can call herself "self-made". 

"Kylie Jenner isn't self made .Go and argue with your ancestors," one Twitter user wrote.

Dictionary.com took a swipe at Kylie, tweeting the definition of self-made. 

"Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided," the definition read. 

Self-made or not, Kylie is still a billionaire at 21!
