Make a copy of the last layer made and select the tool Free Transform (CTRL + T) to reduce the copy and apply other parameters to this layer: Blending Options – Inner Shadow (Overlay options – Inner shadow)

Create a new layer and fill it with black color, select the tool Paint Bucket Tool (G) (Fill tool) for this operation:

Next, select the tool Brush Tool (B) (Brush tool) with soft edges, white, double-click with the mouse as shown in the screenshot below:

Apply the following settings for the last layer twice: Filter – Stylize – Extrude (Filter – Stylization – Extrusion)

Using the tool Free transform lift a little layer:

Apply the following parameters for the layer: Fill 50% (Fill 50%)
Blending mode – Color Dodge (Blend Mode – Brightening Basics)

For the next step we will need the tool again. Ellipse tool (U) (Ellipse tool) to draw a different circle:

Blending Options – Inner Glow (Overlay settings – Inner Glow)

Blending Options – Gradient Overlay (Blending Options — Gradient Overlay)

Blending Options – Outer Glow (Overlay settings – Outer Glow)

Create a new layer and select the brush again. Brush Tool (B)(Brush tool) with soft edges and draw two white circles, each of which are on different layers as shown in the screenshot below:

Translation Board: in my opinion, it would be easier to make these highlights as follows. On a separate layer, draw these two circles with a brush, then hold down CTRL and click on the layer with a large circle that overlaps the layer with the Extrusion filter, and apply the Distortion – Spherization filter. This is easier and more realistic.
