Look at the kinds of makeup effects models use to enhance their cheekbones, where they lighten, where they darken. Play with dodge & burn effects. It's not too hard to create shape just by faking the lighting. (I used to do work for a magazine that placed a premium on curvaceous female bodies. All manner of enhancements were possible without resorting to distortion filters and the like, just by shifting the areas where light hits, and misses.)
Hi Edgework,

Thanks for your reply and your suggestions. I will try your method as well and will let you know how I get on.

thanking you

Add highlights to the upper part of the cheekbone, and add shadows to the lower part. That'll give the illusion of shape, just as good makeup enhances shape.
Hi Kevin Connery,

Thanks for your reply. I will follow all your suggestions too and see how I get on. This is the first time I am doing this fuller cheek effect, well you learn something new everyday.

thanking you
