Character Descriptions

I've been wondering what to do about describing my characters' physical appearances. Because I'm totally uninterested in how they look. I know that it matters (but not to me) yet it will come off inconsistent or distracting if I just throw something down. I could make them look like silly messes for my amusement, or I could waste my time researching clothing that fit their personalities or whatever. Figuring out hairstyles. Wondering about eye shapes.

That all sounds ridiculous to me. Clothing might be a matter of expression. But physical appearance is kind of a nature thing, beyond how well you take care of yourself hygiene- and nutrition-wise.

I'll figure it all out, I suppose.
