How to get cheekbones?

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.

chipmunk cheeks! that’s what i have!! (i will admit that one can store bites of cake in there without anyone being any the wiser, so *sighs* there are SOME advantages…)

my cheekbones are covered by wrinkles these days.

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.

I can’t wait until I see my cheekbones and neck! My face still looks so chunky! 😦

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!
