An algorithm to automatically detect facial features from color images has been developed. First, face region is located using skin-color information. Then, the iris candidates are extracted from the intensity valleys created from the detected face. Next, the costs for each pair of iris candidates are computed to determine the real pair of irises. Mouth region and corners are detected using color space method, image processing and corners detection techniques. This algorithm has been tested to specifically reduce the effects of beard, moustache, hairstyle and facial expression in automated facial features detection.
