This is not a good idea for multiple reasons
1) they are two very different species, therefore need different care and temps, therefore the enclosure would be too cold for one of the lizards, and too hot for the other, which would lead to health issues
2) Due to the fact that they are seperate species, and the fact that you would have gotten them from seperate places, then they most likely cary very different types of bacteria and even parasites in their bodies. This is a problem because reptiles along with other animals can pick up parasite and bacteria from poop laying on the ground, therefore the skink could get a parasite from the bearded dragon's poop, or vise versa. Also, a parasite that resides in a blue tongued skink, may not be very detrimental to the health of the skink, but it could be very unhealthy for the dragon, and may even kill it.
Due to these two reasons, and many more, i highly suggest that you do not keep the blue tongued skink, and a bearded dragon in the same enclosure
