I had no idea what blackface mean, so I had to google it, and if I am understanding correctly, then yes, I think she used makeup to portray a black character. As I said, I didn’t manage to see her in person so all I know are pictures of her, but as far as I know, she isn’t a person of color in real life (I’m sorry if anybody finds the term offensive, it’s the only one I know, semi-poor english and whatnot).
As for if it’s okay or not, I cannot say, I think it’s a way of perception. The person wanted to portray the character as good as possible and seeing as Taranee is not a white girl, she chose to color her skin. I’m guessing if she stayed white, other people would not be ok with her white-washing the character. 
I suppose in the end it’s impossible for everybody to be happy with her cosplay, unless she was actually a black person cosplaying Tara. 

Lies and propaganda.
If you’re white and want to cosplay a black character no one would cry about you NOT painting your skin a different colour for a costume.
Blackface is racist. Don’t change your skin colour if you’re cosplaying as characters from races that actually exist.

I’d love to agree with you, but I HAVE seen people being called out for white washing :/

I hate the fact that people often forget cosplay is for fun and storm in with the racism arguments.. 
Is this cosplayer’s blackface racist? - yes.
Did she intentionally do it to insult somebody - no. I don’t think she saw it as being racist, I highly doubt she would’ve done it if she knew people will be offended by it.

When your animators change your character so you can fit in the awful snob rich blonde trope.

The W.I.T.C.H. graphic novels actually taught me a ton about drawing, poses, color, etc. I used to copy from the books to learn. It’s also the closest thing to manga/anime that I ever got into.
