I am a minimalist, in world building and character descriptions. I believe that less is better. The reader needs to know certain things about the world of the story and the characters that inhabit that world, but may well be better off not knowing anything more than that minimum.
That ignorance is not so useful for the author. They should know how the world works and the deep motivations of their characters. As the story progresses, the needs of the story should dictate what is offered to the reader and what is not. Is the color of eyes, hair, and overcoat of one of the characters important to the story? Probably not, unless the fact that a crime was committed by someone closely resembling the character in question. That fact drives the story and thus should be included in the material leading up to the police breaking down the character's front door.
When descriptive material is need (or the author cannot help waxing descriptive), a lot of information can be gleaned from how other characters in the story react to the target character. Beauty, ugliness, wisdom, nastiness, and serenity can all be inferred from the behavior of others. Joe has the hots for Betty; he says I love her body/hair/eyes/nose/etc. Bill cannot stand Pete; he rants about Pete's behavior. Judy is afraid of Bruno the Brute; she avoids him whenever she can and trembles in his presence when she cannot. We really do not need the author as uber-narrator to tell us what dialog and behavior can show us.
Write up your lists. Then, for each character interaction, ask how do the items on those lists affect what the other character say and do. Introduce just the material that is needed as late as possible.
Now for a quick example.
Jack: I just saw Larry.
Jack: He is not so bad. He has a great job. He drives a Beamer. Not bad looking, too.
Jill: Sounds like he is paying you to shill for him. Hiding his authentic self.
Jack: You are never going to find someone, if you insist on playing the Bitch Intimidator.
Jill: At his very best, Larry creeps me out. Then he starts oinking and rooting through the garbage. I can do so much better than Larry.
Jack: At least come to the party on Friday. I promised that you would be there.
Jill: Promised? On what authority? I am a full-fledged human being, with agency and intelligence. I am the only one who makes such promises.
Jack: Okay! Okay! I overstepped. But you need to relax, maintain life balance, not work all of the time. It will be fun. I will even run interference if Larry gets handsy.
Jill: And you need to stop trading on your extreme good looks. Your account with me is perilously close to overdrawn. And I can handle Larry. I am his worst nightmare. He just doesn't know it yet.
This is first-draft quality dialog but we have learned a lot about Jack, Jill and Larry. And not a list of adjectives in sight.
