I do like using the Pre mixed Flesh tint

I use the premixed flesh tint as the base instead of white..very easy to add a bit of yellow ochre, green,blues,umber etc there after.I save the white for extreme highlighting and fine washing last.

Skin Tones that work for me

I have success in using the following color for baby skin and light complexion 2-Naples Yellow Light add in and adjust color of Alizarin Crimson for rosy look. a darker tone add Burnt Sienna. A combination of all three, adjust for darkest brown skin tone. I am still working on my shading, but I found using burnt sienna with yellow naples makes the highlight darker.
