Kylie Jenner makes Forbes 30 Under 30 list to become the only teenage Retail & E-Commerce entrepreneur


There's 30 Under 30... but only one of them is under 20.
Kylie Jenner has been named on Forbes' illustrious 30 under 30 list.
The 19-year-old became the youngest person and only teenager to be named in the Retail and Ecommerce category for 2017.
Despite being able to slip easily into the Art & Style or Hollywood & Entertainment sections, it was her mantle as Founder of Kylie Cosmetics that secured her a spot on to 2017 line-up.
'The reality TV star's Kylie Cosmetics line has gone from strength to strength, with each incarnation of her $29 Lip Kits selling out upon release,' he entry read.
'Sources close to the teenager suggest the glosses did 7 figures in revenues in 2016 alone. Jenner also puts her name to an apparel line, alongside model sister Kendall. 
'Per Forbes' estimates, she's the second-highest annual earner overall in her family, after half-sister Kim Kardashian.'

The annual list consists of 600 entries, of 30 under 30-year-olds divided into 20 categories.
They include: Art & Style, Consumer Tech, Education, Energy, Enterprise Tech, Finance, Food & Drink, Games, Healthcare, Hollywood & Entertainment, Law & Policy, Manufacturing & Industry, Marketing & Advertising, Media, Music, Retail & E-commerce, Science, Social Entrepreneurs, Sports and Venture Capital. 
The  magazine insists 'our "no repeats" policy insures surfacing new talent every year'.

Other famous faces making the list in various categories include Elle Fanning, Hilary Duff, Margot Robbie, Evan Rachel Wood, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, YouTube star Tyler Oakley, and soon-to-be young Han Solo: Alden Ehrenreich.
