the customers here do like kind of “pink and a little magenta” skintones rather than yellowish): maybe due to the AWB, and maybe also due to the camera's own color rendering.

I did not read the whole thread, so please forgive me if this answer has already been given.

1. Put the Picture control to Portrait and adjust sharpness to 3, contrast 0, saturation +1.

2. Play a little with the WB fine tuning. You have two directions: cold-warm and magenta-green. Adjust to taste (I could guess about amber +1, magenta +1 or +2, but I do not shoot Asian people).

If shooting RAW, try to convert them with Nikon View (free) and have a look.

If shooting in difficult lighting, try Custom white balance with an Expodisk (maybe the warm type).
