Tart up means to improve the appearance of something, but can imply negative connotations ie; Make something look better than it really is.

The phrase derives from the slang word "tart" for prostitute, and the tendency of prostitutes to go to extremes in trying to improve their appearance in order to make themselves more marketable. As a result, the phrase can imply that the improvement is superficial, crass, unsubtle, and designed to hide what should be obvious faults.
