can a female perform salaah with make-up?
That is if the make-up is applied after the wudhu has been made?

There are two situations when performing Salah with makeup

1. Applying makeup before making Wudhu
If a woman applies makeup before performing Wudhu, then the person has to ensure that the makeup should not prevent the water from reaching any part of the body which has to be washed in Wudhu.

If the makeup is so thick (like nail polish etc) that water does not reach that part which has to be washed in Wudhu, then it has to be removed and then the Wudhu must be made. If the makeup is not removed, then the Wudhu will be incomplete and Salah will be invalid.

2. Applying makeup after making Wudhu
If a woman applies makeup after making Wudhu, then there is no harm in performing Salah with it.
However, in both situations, if the makeup itself is impure (e.g. it contains Haram ingredients), then Salah will not be valid. If the makeup is free from impurities and Haram ingredients then Salah will be valid.

And Allah knows best
