What were you doing with your life in the past three years? For Kylie Jenner, she was creating a cosmetic empire. Earlier today, Forbes dropped a bombshell in form of a cover story on the soon-to-be youngest "self-made" billionaire. Let that sink in.

Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 "lip kit" consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017, according to Forbes. Since adding other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, Forbes values her company at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

Add this with her Puma and PacSun endorsement's, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians show, and other ventures, she's conservatively worth $900 million.

With Kylie making headlines for other reasons including giving birth to her and Travis Scott's first daughter, and more recently getting rid of her lip fillers, fans were completely unaware that the cosmetic queen was becoming one of the richest women in the America.

Here's how Twitter is reacting to the huge news.

Many are respecting her hustle:
