Default Color mixing

Hello Everyone

I have a basic question for anyone who would be kind enough to answer. When you are mixing colors, do you mix the colors in their paste form to achieve the color desired, or can you mix a color after the medium has been added to the pigments?

See I am a traditional oil painter, and when I need to mix a flesh tone for instance, I simply mix the colors on my palette that are necessary to achieve the desired tone. However when it comes to tempera, I am not sure one can mix colors, the way I described above, after the pigments have had the egg medium mixed in. Or if one has to mix the desired color before the egg medium is added.

I hope I explained my question clear enough.

Thank you for your time and opinions.
