Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Kylie Jenner first appeared on television when her family began starring in the E! reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians. This show focused on not only Kim Kardashian, but the rest of the family as well. The show first aired in 2007, when Kylie Jenner was only nine years old! When the show first aired, Kylie and her sister Kendall were mainly side characters, but as the years went by and their lives became more interesting, they became bigger players in the show. Even though this is a reality TV show, it seemed more like a scripted drama.
In September 2020, the show will begin airing its 19th season. This means that Kylie has been on-screen for more than a decade. Throughout this time, Kylie has grown up from being just a small teen with boy problems, through starting her own business, and even becoming an adult and having a baby of her own!
Kylie’s fashion career started when she was only 14 years old when she began modeling for PacSun in 2012. Since has been modeling almost consistently ever since. Soon after, she and Kendall Jenner helped to make a pre-teen and teen fashion line, working with PacSun. This was her first professional experience working in designing fashion.
What is even more impressive than her modeling was her first clothing line, which she started with her sister Kendall, called “Kendall & Kylie” in 2015. At this time, Kylie was still only 17 years old. This fashion brand sported the same kind of style that the two girls often wore on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and in their everyday life.
In more recent years, Kylie Jenner has grown her fame by running her own cosmetics company. She first began the company in 2015 by producing a series of lip glosses and other similar make up types. At the time, the company was called “Kylie Lip Kits” but the name of the brand was later changed and is still called “Kylie Cosmetics.” The cosmetics company only worked to give Kylie more fame and all the money that comes along with it. In early 2020, she was declared to be the world’s youngest billionaire. However, there are some rumors that she may only be worth 900 or so million. Either way, it’s very impressive so someone so young to have accomplished so much!
In 2019, Kylie founded a similar brand called “Kylie Skin” which specialized in skincare products, rather than just makeup. Since then, Kylie has also worked with the fashion company Balmain to launch a makeup collection together. There is no doubt that Kylie will continue to work in the fashion and makeup world for years to come.
