What you need to know about Kylie Jenner

Kylie Kristen Jenner (born August 10, 1997) is an American media personality, socialite, model, and businesswoman. She starred in the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians from 2007 to 2021 and is the founder and owner of cosmetic company Kylie Cosmetics. She is currently the most followed woman on Instagram.

At age 14 in 2012, she collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her sister Kendall, and created a line of clothing, “Kendall & Kylie”. In 2015, Jenner launched her own cosmetics line called Kylie Lip Kits, which was renamed to Kylie Cosmetics the following year. They also released a mobile app that reached number one on the iTunes App Store called Kendall and Kylie.

In 2014 and 2015, Time magazine listed the Jenner sisters on their list of the most influential teens in the world, citing their considerable influence among youth on social media. As of September 23, with over 270 million followers, she is the most followed woman on Instagram. In 2017, Jenner was placed on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, making her the youngest person to be featured on the list. Jenner starred on her own spin-off series, Life of Kylie, which premiered on E! on August 6, 2017. In November 2018, New York Post credited her for being the most influential celebrity in the fashion industry.

According to Forbes, in 2019, Jenner’s net worth was estimated at US$1 billion, making her, at age 21, the world’s youngest self-made billionaire as of March 2019, though the notion of Jenner being self-made is a subject of controversy, owing to her privileged background. In May 2020, however, Forbes released a statement accusing Jenner of forging tax documents so she would appear as a billionaire. The publication also accused her of fabricating revenue figures for Kylie Cosmetics.

2013–2014: Early ventures

The Jenner sisters co-hosted the 2014 Much Music Video Awards, where Kylie made her acting debut in a promo for the show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in June 2014. In August 2014, the Jenner sisters appeared in singer PartyNextDoor’s “Recognize” music video. She also appeared in Jaden Smith’s music video for his song “Blue Ocean”. Jenner and her sister Kendall co-authored the dystopian science fiction novel Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia, which revolved around two twin girls, Lex and Livia, in a “self-sustaining biosphere” put together from the remains of Earth known as Indra. The novel was criticized upon release as a ghostwritten work, which prompted its ghostwriter Maya Sloan to reveal that while the Jenner sisters wrote a two-page outline for what they wanted the novel to be like, Sloan was truly responsible for the writing of the book. However, the Jenners’ creative director, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman, clarified that the two had numerous Skype and FaceTime calls with Sloan to discuss the content of the novel. The novel was mostly panned by critics, and sold only 13,000 copies in its first four months on sale. The book was also given a sequel, Time of the Twins, which was also co-authored by the Jenner sisters.

The Jenner sisters were booed while introducing brother-in-law Kanye West’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2015. In May 2015, an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in which Jenner admitted to getting a lip augmentation. Her enhanced lips from lip fillers created speculation and gained her publicity. Prior to the episode’s debut, Jenner stated that she merely used lip liner and over lined her lips. As a result, the practice of suctioning one’s lips into a small glass in order to induce greater blood flow to swell the lips was called the “Kylie Jenner Challenge”

2019–present: Debut of Kylie Skin

In April 2019, Jenner and her half-sister Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty teamed up to launch a new fragrance. This collaboration became Jenner’s first foray into fragrance and it launched on April 26. Jenner founded her own skincare brand Kylie Skin which was launched on May 22. The brand began producing dermis products, including face washes, scrubs, moisturizers and makeup removing wipes. On June 14, 2019, Kylie Cosmetics launched their collaboration with her half-sister Khloé Kardashian called Kylie Cosmetics x Koko Kollection. This marked their third collaboration after previously launched special collection of lip products called Koko Kollection in 2016 and the second part in 2017. In September, Jenner announced that she was serving as the makeup artistic director for Balmain’s Spring 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week. To celebrate the new line, Kylie Cosmetics and Balmain launched a capsule makeup collection and available on September 27, the day of the show, on the Kylie Cosmetics website. This was the first time Jenner collaborated on a makeup collection with someone outside of her family’s inner circle.

 

Relationships

In August 2014, Tyga was seen getting close with Jenner at her 17th birthday party. Days later, Tyga ended his relationship with Blac Chyna, his fiancée and the mother of his son. In 2015, when she turned 18, Jenner and Tyga made their relationship official. Jenner subsequently made appearances in two of Tyga’s music videos, “Stimulated” and “Dope’d Up”. In April 2017, Jenner and Tyga broke up.

In April 2017, Jenner was first seen with Travis Scott at Coachella. On February 1, 2018, Jenner gave birth to their daughter, Stormi Webster. Jenner appeared in the music video for “Stop Trying to Be God”, from Scott’s third studio album Astroworld. They broke up in September 2019, but quarantined together during the COVID-19 pandemic for the sake of their daughter and ended up rekindling their relationship. On September 7, 2021, after weeks of speculation, Jenner revealed that she and Scott are expecting their second child.

Friendship with Jordyn Woods

In 2012, Jenner and Jordyn Woods met through their mutual friend, Jaden Smith. They were close friends, with Woods appearing in Jenner’s 2017 reality TV show, Life of Kylie, and Jenner’s 2018 pregnancy video. In September 2018, Kylie Cosmetics launched the Kylie x Jordyn collection, a collaboration between the two friends.

In 2019, Woods “hooked up with” Tristan Thompson, who, at the time, was in a relationship with Jenner’s half-sister Khloé. This ended the friendship between Jenner and Woods, and Jenner cut the price of her Woods-named lip kit after the scandal broke.

 

Forbes cover

Jenner appeared on the cover of the August 2018 issue of Forbes. The magazine claimed she had a net worth of $900 million and that she was on the verge of becoming the youngest “self-made” billionaire. This would beat Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23. However, the publication’s use of the term “self-made” sparked widespread criticism and jokes online. Critics argued that Jenner was already born into fame and fortune. Some discussions took a more serious tone, with journalists writing pieces on wealth distribution, inequality and inheritance, as well as upward mobility in society. However, celebrities such as Jenner’s half-sister Kim Kardashian and socialite Paris Hilton have come out and defended Jenner, legitimizing assertions that she is indeed self-made, while Hilton also described herself as self-made.
