The media mogul shows us the connection between self-care and success.


We’ve chosen to highlight and celebrate influential women from all spectrums of the beauty industry – from the creators, tastemakers, and influencers, to the everyday woman hoping to craft the perfect look. SHEEN Magazine’s March/April Social Media Beauty issue personifies that all women are uniquely and wonderfully one-of-a-kind. And sometimes with the ever-changing standards society throws our way, we lose sight of this. Remember, beauty comes from within. This issue is a reminder that beauty is more than skin deep!

What better way to toast to the beauty of social media than with one of the most affluent women in cyberspace – media boss Karen Civil. Known for her success as a social media and digital marketing guru, Karen Civil, like social media, continues to evolve and stand the test of time. In her candid interview, the resilient shero shares the keys to her success, work-life-balance, and “the millennial impact.”

“Companies and brands now, they’re not afraid of change. They’ve identified the impact of influencers, millennials, and people of color. We’re here, and they could ignore us, but they don’t anymore. It’s such an incredible feeling.” – Karen Civil

Our inside cover features Camille Rose Naturals Founder and CEO Janell Stephens. The beauty entrepreneur sheds light on how she introduced organic ingredients into the natural hair movement.

“I didn’t just rush myself and put everything out there all at once… I took in what I could handle and kept moving forward, but at my own pace.” – Janell Stephens
