Beyonce’s 5-year-old daughter, Bue Ivy, will now have her own cosmetics line

5 celebrity kids who are wildly successful before being old enough to drink

You’d think a 5-year-old’s biggest worry would be a broken crayon, or something to that effect (bear with us, it’s been a while since we were five). But for Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z, it’s planning the launch of a beauty empire. No biggie.

When news broke that Blue Ivy was to become a business mogul in her own right, at the mature age of five, the first reaction was disbelief. Second was a deep session of introspection that mainly involved the question: What are you doing with your life?

One might argue that having hugely successful parents could have influenced her business opportunities, and for most part you would be right. But remember that this is Beyoncé’s progeny we’re talking about, and we’ll probably buy eye-wateringly priced crayons from her brand too.

5 celebrity kids who achieved success before 21

Lily-Rose Depp (17)

Not only has Johnny Depp and Vanessa Pardis’ 17-year-old daughter starred in Chanel’s campaigns, she even closed its Spring 2017 Haute Couture show. Aside from this, she made her acting debut at Sundance in 2016 with a movie called Yoga Hosers after which she starred in the period drama Planetarium with Natalie Portman.

Romeo Beckham (14)

Romeo Beckham added to the family’s collective net worth of over $500 million by becoming a model at the age of 10. Back in 2013, he was signed on to appear in a campaign for Burberry and continued to model for them until Christmas 2015. Though he had a quieter 2016 than his siblings (as quiet as a celebrity kid’s life can be), it was reported that he was joining tennis players Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios in training.

Kylie Jenner (19)

Can you remember a world where Instagram videos of beauty vloggers swatching the latest Kylie Lip Kit or unboxing the holiday collection didn’t exist? Because we can’t. Kylie Jenner launched her empire, that has helped her amass a net worth of over $10 million, in 2016 after the wildly successful global launch of her lip kit. She has moved on from lip kits to eye shadows (Kyshadows, of course) and eye liners (Kyliners). What’s next? Kylighters?

Blue Ivy Carter (5)

Reportedly, Beyoncé and co. sought to trademark Blue Ivy’s name to start a company that manufactures cosmetics and hair care essentials, and produces films and live events (including musical performances). While there hasn’t been any further information about the company, a report did suggest that the products are aimed at children. 

Aaliyah Kashyap (15)

When Anurag Kashyap's daughter Aaliyah Kashyap is not hanging out with BFF Khushi Kapoor (that’s Sridevi’s daughter, in case you didn’t know) and making short films for her school, she is using her massive social media following to promote brands and products. At the age when you were trying to win at puberty, she landed herself a full-time modelling contract for online fashion portal, Aavantam.
