Classic facial proportions are the "ideal" proportions, that were developed in antiquity.
In real life these measurements vary from face to face - that's what makes us all different - these variations is the tool for "likeness" in a portrait..
Before you can draw an entire face, you must first learn to draw each of the facial features individually. Only by taking one feature at a time can you learn the anatomy well and understand what to look for and capture in your drawing.
So to recap:
1. Learn and practice basic shapes. Train your eye to identify the basic shapes in everything you see.
2. Strengthen and practice where you're weakest at drawing. See how the pros do it. Master it.
3. Practice, practice, practice. Train your hand/eye coordination. Fill up your mind with details to draw from.
4. Take a class, or occasional workshop. Get close enough to an art instructor with whom you can draw wisdom, techniques, and inspiration from.
Share what you've learned with others. Draw for them. And keep at it. They may not be impressed now. But believe me, they will be.
