DO is used as follows:
DO is used when talking about work, jobs or tasks, taking care of your body and general actions.
• Do the Dishes
• So the laundry
• Do a report
• Do a course
• Do your hair
• Do your makeup
• Do well
• Do everything or Do nothing

We sometimes use DO to replace a verb when the meaning is clear or obvious. This is more common in informal spoken English:
• Do I need to do my hair? (do = brush or comb)
• Have you done the dishes yet? (done = washed)
• I'll do the kitchen if you do the lawns (do = clean, do = mow)

When do you use MAKE?
Make is for food, money, relationships and communication
• Make breakfast
• Make a reservation
• Make a fortune
• Make $100 an hour
• Make friends
• Makeup ( to patch up with someone)
• Make a pass
• Make a point
• Make a confession
• Make an excuse

We also use Make for producing an action or reaction:
• Onions make your eyes water.
• You make me happy.
• It’s not my fault. My brother made me do it!
