There is a large selection of icons in the icon plugin but, if you can’t see what you are looking for go to Font Awesome, choose an icon and manually enter the icon name into the icon="icon-name" attribute.

For example, to add this icon:

And to choose the colour, size and position you would also add this to the code:

[icon icon="user-secret" color="custom" size="36" position="block"]

Attributes include:
icon="" – Font awesome icon name without the “fa-“.
color="" – There are a few pre styled colors to make things easy like Black, White, Grey etc.
override="" – You can override the pre styled colors with your custom HEX color.
size="" – There are several size options.
position="" – This allows you to make the icon either stand alone or inline with text.

Example code:

[icon icon="heart-o" color="default" override="#f37358" size="36" position="block"]
