The amount outdoes reality star Kylie Jenner’s success, who was on the cover of Forbes recently for the “America’s Women Billionaires” story. According to Forbes’s estimated appraisal, Kylie has a $900m empire that is expected to reach the $1bn mark.

“It has always been my dream to create an iconic beauty brand that goes beyond the usual limitations, that lives outside the parameters of what is expected,” said McGrath confirming the development. The iconic MUA launched her brand in 2016.
