At 00:37 of this video "Valspar Color For The Colorblind" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea_xOqNvntA) the woman say "I've had moments where girls would make fun of me for not knowing girly shades, and I felt self-conscious about it."
What does "self-conscious" mean in this sentence?
Does she mean she felt "embarrassed" or she herself noticed that (she didn't know what are girly shades) as well?

Many thanks.

Self-conscious, while it literally means aware of oneself, often really means shy or afraid someone will say something about oneself.
