I found no direct bus. You need to take HK MTR from Lo Wu to Sheung shui station after going through the customs at Shenzhen Luo Hu, then take Exit D, walk to Platform B4 to take A43 to the airport, taking 85min in total.

You need to show your passport, and documents that can prove your purpose to Mainland China, like round-trip ticket, hotel reservation for tourism. You will go through the inspections of Mainland China and also HK at the same point at Hong Kong West Kowloon Railway Station.
