She was being demure.

From Oxford dictionaries:

Demure: (of a woman or her behavior) reserved, modest, and shy


One common expression is avert her eyes. This can mean a more general action than lowering her eyes; avert her eyes from his gaze means to move her eyes away, rather than specifically lowering them.
