Mariah Carey received a kiss from her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, in the most recent photo on her Instagram page. In a snapshot that appeared to have been taken during the couple's Valentine's Day celebration, the 36-year-old background dancer planted his lips on the "We Belong Together" singer's face as they stood beneath a bunch of white and red balloons. His eyes were closed in the shared snapshot, in which he appeared to be wearing a black and red zippered sweater.

Mariah sent a coquettish glance toward the camera as she received her boyfriend's kiss. The pop legend's faced glowed in the soft lighting. She wore neutral-toned eyeshadow with dark eyeliner and continued the understated makeup application with glossy pink lipstick. Mariah wore her honey-blond hair straight for the occasion, and it fell well past her shoulders. All of her beauty choices elegantly complemented the sparkly evening gown she wore in the image.

Mariah left her caption blank except for a kissing face emoji.

As of this writing, the photo has been liked more than 100,000 times, and over 1,200 Instagram users have commented on it. In those comments, fans raved over the snapshot of the couple.

And others made quips about the look the singer had on her face in the photo.

"Mariah's 'when another girl is looking at my bae' face," a fourth Instagram user wrote.
