I feel like I can write a story about someone's life just after looking at their face.

I like to think the same. Although writing a story might be a bit much than what I think I can glean. And then, it really would just be a story. Picking out from all of the different possibilities is a task. You really need to test whether you are correct or not, correcting for personal biases. It's a difficult thing, really. Of course, I'm really uncertain, so maybe that fucks me up on sticking with one theory, too.
Static expressions are a bit harder to deal with. But micro-expressions and... non-static expressions, I feel, give me great insight into what a person is thinking, where they have been in life, their early family life, their current social life, and their disposition towards me. Of course, it's ambiguous as fuck, and there's really no way to actually prove my inferences. But they're good cliff notes to have.
I've spent a lot of time practicing reading people, pretty much out of necessity; but also as a hobby of sorts. Reading people is a really good skill to have, and can save your life. Integrating body language makes it convoluted and even more ambiguous, but it can help you determine more.
There are people I can't read at all though. Those types scare the shit out of me. The funny part is that I'm one of those people who is hard to read. People have a hard time figuring me out, with everything, not just my face.1

Depends on the person because some are almost impossible to read.1
