In emacs 22 and higher, if you put point on the face, M-x customize-face
will default to that face under point. 

However, a useful an more general approach is to use 

,----[ C-h f list-faces-display RET ]
| list-faces-display is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `faces.el'.
| It is bound to  <control down-mouse-2> <df> ,  <menu-bar> <edit> <props> <df> 
.
| (list-faces-display &optional REGEXP)
| 
| List all faces, using the same sample text in each.
| The sample text is a string that comes from the variable
| `list-faces-sample-text'.
| 
| If REGEXP is non-nil, list only those faces with names matching
| this regular expression.  When called interactively with a prefix
| arg, prompt for a regular expression.
