Default Pigment pastes or dry pigments?

When researching the techniques used in egg tempera, I find most sources discuss making pigment pastes to mix with the medium. Sometimes I come across artists that just add the egg tempera medium directly to dry pigment. I guess if you are adding water to thin the paint anyway, it might not make much difference? I have been making pigment pastes. I am wondering if anyone has opinions about these two slightly different methods of making paint?
