"Make-Up" refers to two different bands:
1. Make-Up were a band from Washington DC, consisting of Ian Svenonius on vocals, James Canty on guitar, Michelle Mae on bass, and Steve Gamboa on drums.
The band formed in 1995, with Svenonius, Canty and Gamboa having previously performed together in Nation of Ulysses and the short-lived Cupid Car Club. They combined garage rock, soul and self-styled 'liberation theology' to make a new genre they called Gospel Yeh-Yeh. They released three studio LPs, two live LPs, and a compilation of singles and B-sides. They split in 2000.
Svenonius and Mae went on to play together in Weird War. Svenonius, now a published author, is a member of Chain & The Gang and released an album under the name David Candy. James Canty is currently a guitarist for Ted Leo & the Pharmacists.
