This question already has an answer here:

I've looked everywhere, the breezehome and dragonsreach. In the breezehome it says the bed for Lydia is still owned. In an earlier quest Lydia got killed by a powerful mage, which I killed by a sneak attack. I've went back multiple times but she still lays there dead. I now have a follower Jenassa, and it said I don't have anyone. So is she dead completely and won't be coming back. Or is there a way to bring her back?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you're playing on PC, you can input the following commands to bring her back

moveto player

If you're not playing on PC, then your only option is to reload to an earlier save.

It should be noted that if she does stay dead, her belongings will show up with her coffin in the Hall of the Dead three days later. – Ben Mar 22 '13 at 15:27
