    the heavy bags under her eyes

    Tired: The stress showed all over the Fern Britton's face as she returned to This Morning, make-up failing to cover up the heavy bags under her eyes
    Hi! We have a similar expression in Mandarin with "the bags under one's eyes". It is eye-bags in Mandarin.

    It sounds weird for " she has heavy eye-bags" in English?

    As far as I know, eye-bag is a slang word for Eye Circles.

    "the bags under one's eyes" seems to be an "international expression" We have exactly the same expression in Polish.
