There are some SERIOUSLY successful women on this list

Huda Kattan And Kylie Jenner have landed a place on Forbes' list, America's Richest Self-Made Women List. 

Kylie Jenner is the youngest person to make Forbes' annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women.

Kylie became a star thanks to her family's reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but it was when she branched out into beauty, creating the Lip Kits under her Kylie Cosmetics banner, that she really made big bucks.

Estimated to be worth $900 million (Dhs3.3 billion), the 20-year-old landed at the number 27 spot on the yearly rich list, eclipsing her older half-sister Kim Kardashian, owner of KKW Beauty, who came in at 54 with $350 million (Dhs1.2 billion).

"It's incredible to be recognised for something I'm so passionate about, and I'm really grateful for that," Kylie, who appears on the Forbes cover, said in the accompanying feature. "I've always loved make-up and worked really hard to bring the first lip kit to market. Connecting with my fans and creating product that excites them has been an incredible process. I've learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams."

Forbes reports that Kylie Cosmetics, founded in 2016, is now worth nearly $800 million (£603 million) and the beauty mogul, who plumped up her own pout with lip fillers up until recently, owns 100 per cent of the company.

Dubai's own Huda Kattan - the founder of Huda Beauty came in at number 37, with $550 million (Dhs2 billion). 

“Nowadays, you're only limited by your dreams. We think big and we dream big," said Huda told Forbes

Keep reaching for the next level. #SelfMadeWomen
