It is a well-known fact that facial expressions are one of the key reflectors of the emotional state of a person and the research on the same has been spanning for a long time. Being an essential requirement in Human Computer Interaction as well as other applications such as automobile safety, mental health detection, animations, etc. recognizing facial expressions with precision has become vital. This paper presents a survey on various important and effective techniques present in literature along with their variations used recently. Prominent techniques of each step and a detailed discussion on feature extraction methods have been provided along with a detailed comparison of few recent approaches.
