Not detecting African American woman's face

I am creating a Makeup app using the FaceMark api and it detects all the Caucasian faces in my demo but it will not detect the African American Woman. You can find the image here:


I have even tried photoshopping the image to include more contrast around features but it still doesn't work. Do you know what is going on here?

Yes, unfortunately there is no machine learning algorithm that produces 100% correct results. We try to minimize global error on a large sample database and avoid overfitting, therefore false positives as well as false negatives are still possible. But we don't stop our research and experiments, so smarter versions of our APIs are coming.
