How many prefer the spelling "makeup" and how many prefer "make-up"? (When used as a noun, not as a verb.)

What about make-up, or Make up, or Make Up. No, Make-up sounds right  (I seem to be avoiding the things I really should be doing today!)

I always use make-up as makeup doesn't look right to me either. Not sure which is grammatically correct just my preference
