observe = to watch carefully the way something happens or the way someone does something, especially in order to learn more about it.
"HE WAS VERY EFFEMINATE. WHEN HE FIRST ARRIVED AT MGM, HE WOULD WEAR MAKEUP. HE WENT ONTO ONE SET JUST TO OBSERVE. AND HE WORE MORE MAKEUP THAN MOST OF THE ACTRESSES"
What is the meaning of "observe" here?
Thanks a lot.
So it means here "to repair his make up"? just the context is confusing.
