    I saw Tyra have these big and black bags around her eyes when she didn't wear makeup

    I saw Tyra have these big and black bags around her eyes when she didn't wear makeup.

    Is this sentence correct?

    Yes, though I would probably write "big, black bags under". Around means all round, I usually "bags" are under the eyes.

    Thanks, Anglika, for your remarks, but I forgot to tell you to focus on saw and have. Are there any problems with sequence of tense?

    "Saw" is fine, but it should say "had" instead of "have."

    Thank you, Ouisch, for the comment.
    By the way, there is a similar thread started by me with the title of "Are they correct" on the same front page.
    Would you like to take a look at it and make some comments? Thanks.
