Need help with creating EXTREME CHEEKBONES

Hello! I am planning a cosplay of Calliope from Homestuck this summer (this outfit, specifically).
As you can see, she has a face rather reminiscent of a skull-- I was wondering if I could get pointers on ways to recreate her cheekbones.
I myself have never done any sort of prosthetic creation, so if you suggest that, please keep in mind I'm a total newb hehe.

I could probably do it with makeup (extreme contouring woohoo!) but if there's some way I could create an easy/cheap prosthetic that would be optimal.

One option is cosmetic nose/scar wax. Another is to make a face cast and build cheekbones with something like liquid latex. Then carefully peel the cheekbones off the cast, and adhere them to your face. First option is cheaper and less time consuming.
You should be able to find more info about this on makeup forums or YouTube. This is out of my purview, but hope this gives you some direction.

building latex or foam prosthetics is neither easy nor cheap.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive. Instagram: penlowe
My Etsy shop: I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
