Similar to a glare or a stink eye.

Sometimes intended to make someone feel uncomfortable.

It's a rude action.
I couldn't find my hair tie so I went to the athletic training room to get some pre-wrap. Unfortunately, Ms. Bergin was teaching a class there. As I walked in, she stopped talking and stared me down as she didn't like me walking in. To confirm this, she repeated her words as if I was a huge disruption and slammed the door shut behind me.

She performed a stare down to show her displeasure of a person walking through her class.

When a man sees a woman and looks her from head to toe, usually stopping around the chest or rear end longest, the face being looked at the least. The stare down ends when the man smiles at the girl.
