The full frame equivalent of ideal focal length for portraits is < 50mm. It has only to do with rendering the subject accurately without distortion. That's it.

I think this a great answer (maybe little inaccurate)

I think that short focus (WA) lenses are very sensetive to leveling and tilt, you have to move them out from the subject. Convenient focus lens begins with 50mm and up to 80mm. But, you can use shorter and longer focus it you want to let's say, shorten a little big nose or stretch a little short chin.

All the rules here are the basis for deviation.
