To 'do' something is to complete a verb. I eat = I do eat - The 'do' changes nothing. It is necessary for negating or asking questions though. To 'make' something is to build/construct/change it. I can sometimes mean 'to force'. Eg: I will make a cake = I will build a cake. ('build' isn't really used for making food, but this shows the meaning) I will make a house = I will build a house I will make it blue = I will change it to be blue I will make you run = I will force you to run To make [noun]. = To build/construct [noun]. To make [noun] [adjective]. = To change [noun] to be [adjective]. Less commonly: To make [noun] [verb] = To force [noun] to [verb].
