Can I apply BHA prior to Retin-A?

Hi everyone! I am currently using Retin-A Gel 0.025% and I am wondering if it is ok to apply a 2% solution of BHA (salicylic acid) before applying the retin-a gel. I am currently only using a cleanser and then waiting 30 min to apply retin-a.

I know the best solution is to probably apply bha in the morning but I find that it makes my face red for awhile which makes makeup application a bit difficult.

Thank you!
