Your Eyelash Expert

Cascade Esthetics & The Make-Up Boutique specializes in customized eyelash extensions. From a classic look to a beautiful fluffy volume look. Our goal is to apply eyelashes that fit your style and personality. From beautiful eyelash extensions, lash lifts, to Microblaiding and permanent cosmetics by Alicia at Cascade Esthetics & The Make-Up Boutique is one of the first eyelash extension establishments to specialize in the art of eyelash extensions in Yakima. Elena is also a Licensed Educator and Certified Master Eyelash Trainer. We love lash extensions and want to make sure you have a safe  and happy lash application, so we recommended that you come without makeup on your eyes and that you do not curl your lashes the day of your appointment either. If you wear contact lenses we recommend that you remove them before your appointment. Be ready to spend 2-3 hours laying flat on your back with your eyes closed on a comfy bed of coarse! We like to consult to talk about your eyelash goals and to develop a customized plan that will give you beautiful looking lashes. Some other important information regarding your procedure is that it is painless, as your eyes are closed, and each eyelash extension is individually applied to one individual natural lash. You can even take a lash nap. At the end of your appointment you will be handed a mirror to see your beautiful lashes and then book your next visit for a lash fill. Make sure and check out our gallery of beautiful lash extensions and lash lifts by Elena! 



Classic or Synthetic Mink eyelash extensions give a soft and natural look. Synthetic Mink eyelash extensions are added to one individual isolated lash. I use a variety of curls and the length can vary from 8-15 mm. I tend to use a bolder individual lash which is thicker in width. It will look like you applied multiple coats of mascara without wearing it. Classic lashes start at $125. If lash removal is needed there will be a $40 charge. Please plan on a 1 1/2 to 2 hour relaxing visit. Your visit includes a consultation and design to customize your individual lash style needs. Fills start at $75 and will be needed anywhere from 2-3 weeks to keep your lashes fresh and fluffy.  After 5 weeks a full set will be required.



 The Lash Extensions that are here to stay! Volume Lashes (aka Russian Volume) allow multiple extensions to be applied to one isolated natural lash. A full lash line that appears fluffy and soft is achieved while maintaining the health and safety of the clients natural lashes. The diameters for Volume Lashes vary from 0.05, and 0.07.  Volume Lashes  are lighter, fluffier, give a fuller look and use less adhesive over classic. If you like bold beautiful lashes I am happy to assist you in achieving a fuller look as I prefer using a variety of curls and diameters of extensions and specialize in Volume application. Some commonly used terms for Volume application is 2D to 6D Extensions, Hollywood Lashes, and Russian Volume. My goal is to provide you a lash service that will give you beautiful bold Voluminous lashes. Volume lashes can last 2-5 weeks depending on proper care. Hybrid lashes start at $150. Volume lashes start at $175. An $75 -$85 fill will be needed anywhere from 2-3 weeks. If lash removal is needed there will be a $40 charge. Please plan on a 1 1/2  to 2 hours of a relaxing visit.  After 5 weeks a full set will be required.
