Kylie Jenner graces the cover of Forbes Magazine's August issue, which highlights America's female billionaires.

The financial magazine says Jenner is "conservatively worth" $900 million.

Jenner began selling her makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics in 2016. Since the company's launch, she has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup. In 2017 alone, the company made $330 million.

But that's not enough for some of Jenner's fans. A GoFundMe page has been created by Josh Ostrovsky, known as the "FatJew" on Instagram to help Jenner reach billionaire status.

The GoFundMe page reads this is "EXTREMELY IMPORTANT," and that it's "heartbreaking" Jenner only has a net worth of $900 million. The campaign also includes:

Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn't have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

In comparison, Jenner's half-sister Kim Kardashian West is worth $350 million.

The entrepreneur credits social media for much of her success. She boasts over 100 million followers on Instagram.

"Social media is an amazing platform," Jenner said. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers."

Jenner is expected to take over for Mark Zuckerberg, who previously held the throne of the youngest self-made billionaire through Facebook.
