    Tiger Woods and James Patterson, who both have a net worth of $800 million, round out the top 10 list.

    It was just months ago that Jenner graced the cover of Forbes' "Richest Self-Made Women" issue. The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star took the No. 27 spot on the list.

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

    "I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own," she went on to tell the publication. "Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eye shadow. I turned to makeup to help me feel more confident."
