Two Indian-origin women on Forbes list of America's richest self-made women

On Wednesday, Forbes revealed their latest cover of America's richest self-made women with none other than makeup-mogul and youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kylie Jenner. The magazine estimated that Jenner's cosmetics company, reality TV gig and endorsements have helped the 20-year-old (she turns 21 in August) rake in a $900 million fortune.

Instagram star The Fat Jewish posted the photo, adding that he is so upset that we live in a world where Kylie is not YET a billionaire, so he started an ironic Go Fund Me page to raise the extra $100 Million.

She shared the Forbes magazine cover for Kylie Jenner with the caption: "She was always trolled for getting her lips done, bullied all the time".

Privileged or self-made? Kylie Jenner is set to beat Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the "Youngest Self-Made Billionaire".

Dictionary.com wants to let Kylie Jenner and Forbes know the meaning behind the word "self-made".

As people debate Forbes' decision to put Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires, Dictionary.com is wading into the discourse.

Launched just two years ago, Jenner's cosmetics line sold more than $630 million in product, bringing the company's worth to $800 million, making her brand the fastest growing in the beauty industry.

Jenner's net worth has skyrocketed thanks to the success of Kylie Cosmetics.

The magazine valued her company at almost $800 million and with her reality shows and product endorsements pegged her net worth conservatively at $900 million. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers".
