To live with this, I developed my own DNG profiles based on PSKiss cross camera profiles over the last few years.

Surely you just supported what the others are saying??? Not being a smartxx but...

The PSKiss cross camera profiles are far from perfect. I had to work on them to get them to work to my taste. These profiles do not aim to provide accurate color, but rather, colors which emulate other brands. What the others are suggesting is to use a color chart. That does not solve the problem, it just makes everything more clinical.

I've also started working with PSKiss cross camera profiles for ACR recently and am gravitating towards the D3 Mode I as my baseline favorite for skin tones. I think the Leica M8 profile seems to have the best tone curve for facial detail but turns everything too greenish. If I could merge the color from the D3 Mode I with the tone curve of the Leica I'd do so.

It would be interesting to hear which particular PSKiss profile you found gave the best native results for skin and what further modifications you made to taste.
