So I end up shooting a lot of family gathering photos, indoors and out. And no matter what I set my white balance to, and gray card or not, and speedlight/natural light/combo, I always seem to end up with photos with uneven skin tones with a red/yellow/orangy color cast, instead of a nice even cream/pinkish look.
And I can't figure out how to correct it in post without making everyone turn green or gray, or making the rest of the photo look off-color.
So my question is, is what I am looking for achieved with lighting, or post processing, or both, or neither...?
For reference, what I am getting is something like this:

(I'm shooting Canon T2i, RAW, manual settings, diffused & bounced speedlight indoors, Canon nifty 50 or 20-35mm wide angle)
