Not a 100% definition, but pretty close. ;-)

When do you use MAKE and when do you use DO?

In addition, here's a trick you can use:

Use "do" for work and "make" for create, like this,

Do your homework. (DO work)
Make dinner. (Create a meal)
Do you hair. (DO work)
Make a poster. (Create a piece of art)
Do the dishes. (Do work)
Make a phone call. (Create a connection)
Do your exercises. (DO work)
Make your bed. (Create a beautiful sleeping area)
Do me a favor. (Do work)
Make me happy. (Create a happy atmosphere)

All the best, :D
