DON'T USE A MASS!!!!

You can do these as in place extrusions using the wall surface as your work plane pick but you would be far better off to make a parametric family complete with mirror and frame.

As I said, you would be far better off to do a family.  One family for all of the different diameter mirrors.  Start with a face based template.  Extrue your mirror on the host face using a parameter contolled radius for the extrusion.  The frame could be a flat extrusion or a profiled sweep around the mirror.

 

Download the families guide to help you trough the family creation process.
