How to get cheekbones like this?

I have soft, flabby cheeks and it would appear to be a family trait (mother and sisters also suffer). So I've been on a quest for some well-defined cheekbones for some decades now. I'm not looking for Michelle Pfeiffer style angularity, just a little more Definition. I'm thinking more Heather Armstrong. I've tried sucking my cheeks in, which sort of works, although it makes talking and eating difficult. Perhaps I should wear blusher...

Thoughts anyone?

P.S. I love Dooce (capitalisation tendencies and all).

    I know I have cheekbones somewhere. I just seem to have misplaced them since my daughter was born. :/

    I always wanted thick wavy hair, instead of the straight uninteresting thatch I've inherited. My partner has gorgeous thick and naturally curly/wavy hair, but is forever trying to straighten it. Hmmm... does this tell us something? Perhaps the cheekbones you seek won't suit you.

    I'm trying to imagine soft, flabby cheeks. I can't. If you have the courage, post a pic and I'll give you my verdict for what it's worth :-)

    I know what you mean. Well-defined cheekbones would be great. Oh, well, not in this lifetime for me. I, too, love Dooce (I discovered it from a link on your blog!).

    I know quite well that I do have cheekbones, but they seem to have been lost under my gigantic round chipmunk cheeks. I always look as though I'm carrying around a bunch of nuts stuffed in my mouth, which is not particularly a family trait. I want nicely defined chiseled cheekbones, so sharp you could slice deli meat on them. Like Jude Law's. I'd take his cheekbones.

    It's obviously a chick thing. I can't comprehend why anyone would want such a dramatic change to their features. I'll get me coat.

    Who can forget the wise words spoken by the Duchess of Bedford whose own mother reminded her that, after the age of 40, a woman has to choose between her face and her figure. Do you girls REALLY want to look like Madonna! Oooooo, haggard isn't strong enough a word!
