The facial aging databases promises results are shown on face recognition researches. Nevertheless, face recognition and retrieval across age remains tough and is still challenging. Facial aging represents the accumulation of changes over time Cross-Age Reference Coding (CARC) and a brand new big-scale dataset for face recognition and retrieval throughout age called Cross-Age Celebrity Dataset (CARD). One of the challenges in computerized face recognition is to achieve temporal invariance. In this Paper, we present a comprehensive evaluation of literature on cross age face recognition starting with the biological consequences of aging , it provides a survey of techniques, effects of aging on overall performance evaluation and facial aging databases. Evaluation of the impact of aging on the performance of age-invariant face recognition system is an vital measurement. We also study a 3D aging modelling technique for Face Recognition. It also presents a unique and efficient facial image representation primarily based on Local Binary Pattern (LBP) texture features.
