In this paper we survey and analyze modern neural-network-based facial landmark detection algorithms. We focus on approaches that have led to a significant increase in quality over the past few years on datasets with large pose and emotion variability, high levels of face occlusions - all of which are typical in real-world scenarios. We summarize the improvements into categories, provide quality comparison on difficult and modern in-the-wild datasets: 300-W, AFLW, WFLW, COFW. Additionally, we

Besides, we cover applications and vulnerabilities of the landmark detection algorithms. Based on which, we raise problems that as we hope will lead to further algorithm improvements.
