Personally, what I do is skip on the physical description unless it's important to the character. For example, I don't describe one of my character's physical looks because it has no bearing on who she is and what she does. On the other hand, I do describe another character's physical traits because they're an important part of how he sees his world, the people around him, what he thinks of them, and what he thinks they think of him.

What I do describe is the character's feelings, no matter what. To me, that's what's important to the story. How the character feels and thinks, so you should show that. It makes them more real.

So yeah. I personally don't find physical description that important to describe unless it affects them as a person.

(This is really confusing, so ask for clarification if need be.)
