The end of each year begs for reflection. As we close 2016, a year that we can all agree was pretty rough, it's easy to only see the bad stuff. But a lot of good and important moments did happen — and we've rounded them up, ahead.

Boys in beauty! Feminist spokeswomen with important shit to say! Inclusivity — from runways to shampoo ads! But there's more: Dads had a huge year (see ya later, outdated gender roles!); new studies showed us the silver lining of skin concerns; and meaningful, viral beauty moments were aplenty. While there is obviously still plenty of work to be done, these are a great start.

Without further ado, we give you the best beauty moments of 2016. Raise your glass and mascara wands, because we'll toast to that…
